The Meaning of Thanksgiving


Thanksgiving is a Blessing in and of itself,
Not something that just sits upon a shelf.
An act of giving, a symbol of gratitude,
An expression of love displayed through attitude!

Thanksgiving is a Blessing in and of itself,
A prayer for those less fortunate, then oneself!
It’s a day spent with family, friends, or foe,
A greeting or sentiment, by wire or telephone!

Thanksgiving, is a Blessing in and of itself,
Not something that just sits upon a shelf.
It’s a holiday tradition, cumulated by a hearty feast
Celebrated by many from the North, South West and East!
