Giving Thanks

My nine-year-old niece has a way with words.  She composed this and read it at the Thanksgiving Day table.  I was moved and wanted to share it with our readers.  I’ve also asked her to be a guest blogger, but we’ll see.

Giving Thanks

On a night of great thanks

Your heart comes to call

The items you treasure

Come down from the head

To join you

In great pleasure

The host of the house

Is giving the shelter

Where the family meets

To young from old

Ponder your memories

The ones you desire

Thanksgiving is a time to

Think about what you

Love and who you are

The time of the first

The pilgrims were gracious

They didn’t have much

When they sat down and


So scoot in your chair

Be nice, be thankful

For all that you have

Your family, your heart

Will all come and join

The great feast.
