A Thanksgiving Prayer

Lord, behold our family here assembled.
We thank you for this place in which we dwell,
for the love that unites us,
for the peace accorded to us this day,
for the hope with which we expect the morrow;
for the health, the work, the food and the bright skies
that make our lives delightful;
for our friends in all parts of the earth.

-Robert Louis Stevenson



I am grateful for the love of my life,
the laughter of family, and
the pillow beneath my head.

I am grateful for the encouragement of friends,
the cats curled at my side,
the beautiful blue sky,
and the sun overhead.

I am grateful for running water,
a warm house,
fuzzy slippers, and
the time to sleep-in.

I am grateful for writers who put into words those things I cannot,
for musicians, for artists, and
for nature’s abundant creations.

I am grateful for travel opportunities
and for quiet time at home.

I am grateful for you, my dear readers
and for all the others who I have met online.

I am grateful for abundance.

I am grateful for life.
