To be thankful on such a day, as we awake to peace in our homes,

A warm fire in the morning, coffee, and possibly the paper to read.

A parade is tradition each year in many places, turkey in the oven,

Today will be most special as family will gather in places everywhere.

A table with a feast set to celebrate this occasion that began so far back,

Different foods are shared throughout the land, favorites prepared.

Ham, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie, as well as many other treats,

A chance to get reacquainted with family and friends so long missed.

When it’s Thanksgiving there is another side to the day, sad I’ll say,

Can we pray for the many homeless families, their stories we do not know?

We can wish them well but they need a helping hand to lift them up,

To the soldiers out there away from family, wishing they were home safe.

Let’s remember and think about them on this day, are they okay.
