On this special day and every other day

Let us give THANKS for all the blessings 

That have been bestowed upon us...

Our family...Our friends...Our foes...

And all the creatures we have been blessed with!

Let us not forget those who,

In some way, once touched our lives.

They are now the angels watching over us

From up above! Blessings to one and all!

    Yes, great write, there are so many that are watching from up above on this Thanksgiving day! Great thought to include them. Happy Thanksgiving Laura!

    Thank you Christina!
    I think of my dad every single day! This year I lost two dear friends. One six months ago(55 yrs. old) with cancer; and the other two weeks ago (49 yrs. old) addicted to drugs and alcohol . Terrible loss!
    Sorry, I didnā€™t mean to be so sad on this day. Theyā€™ve been on my mind...
    especially my 49 year old friend!

        Well written and very fitting for this Thanksgiving day! Should be put on a magnet and stuck to the fridge to be read every day!

          Yes, 'those who touched our lives, ' how easily and often unexpectedly they slip away... We all have much to be thankful for - even the tears we shed for those we miss. Beautiful Laura, simply beautiful. Joe
