It’s Thanksgiving Day 2009,
Naturally, one’s thoughts turn to food and to wine.
Turkey and yams and mac ‘n cheese,
It’s safe to say my tummy will be pleased.
But let us not forget the meaning of this day,
To offer our gratitude, thanks, and praise.
For friends and family, the stuff of life!
To those who serve – for freedom they fight.
As you sit down at table to chat and dig in,
Remember the greatness from where we began.
In a land of plenty, we each play a role;
So a life well-lived – that shall be our goal!
