Thanksgiving is such a
It’s more than plenty, and food to eat,
It’s the family gathered around the table,
Each member has his or her own special seat.
The family is seldom together,
We are scattered far and wide,
On this day we make it a point,
To be united side by side.
We share the memories of days gone by,
Our hopes, and the places we use to roam.
We pray for loved one who are abroad,
Or away, not able to make it home.
We give thanks for our families, friends,
And this great country we are so proud of,
For the opportunity to live in freedom,
We thank God for His mercy and love.
