Happy Thanksgiving!



For the hay and the corn and the wheat that is reaped,
For the labor well done, and the barns that are heaped,
For the sun and the dew and the sweet honeycomb,
For the rose and the song and the harvest brought home --
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

For the trade and the skill and the wealth in our land,
For the cunning and strength of the workingman's hand,
For the good that our artists and poets have taught,
For the friendship that hope and affection have brought --
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

For the homes that with purest affection are blest,
For the season of plenty and well-deserved rest,
For our country extending from sea unto sea;
The land that is known as the "Land of the Free" --
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

I'll be unplugged and away from the matrix for the next few days so that I can enjoy this beautiful holiday with my family. Many blessings to you and yours and best wishes for a very Happy Thanksgiving!

Wishing you a beautiful weekend!

Happy thanksgiving Terri.
In Germany we celebrate thanksgiving or better Erntedabk witch means Harvestthanks, when the last harvesting is indeed done. That is the first Sunday in Oktober. But it is not a big family celebration like yours.
Have a great day with your friends and family.
