Many reasons to give thanks this day,
for good friends who pass our way.
They touch our lives and stay a while,
help us walk the long tough miles.
Our family surrounds us as we pray,
upon this blessed Thanksgiving Day.
It is not the food or the apple cider,
it's seeing grammy, sitting beside her.
Family traditions, dad's carving knife,
on the TV, "It's A Wonderful Life".
All gathered around a table of love,
give thanks for bounty to God above.
All these reasons mean the most,
to family and friends I say a toast.
May we be blessed every day,
love one another come what may.
