Thanksgiving Day in the USA - a
very special holiday when millions of
Americans gather with family and friends
to share food and give thanks for
the many blessings in our lives -
blessings that we tend to take for granted
way too often on other days of the
I think of the countless things I am
thankful for today, the many special
people I've met and friends
I've made in this fascinating
industry over the years
immediately come to mind. If I were a poet
you would inspire me to write one!
However, since I'm not, let me share one
that sums up what I'm thinking about you
is here, so our minds have turned
To what time has taught us, to what we've
We often focus all our thought
On shiny things we've shopped and bought.
We take our pleasure in material things,
Forgetting the pleasure that friendship
If a lot of our stuff just vanished today,
We'd see the foundation of each happy day
Is special relationships, constant and true,
And that's when our thoughts go directly to you.
We wish you a Thanksgiving you'll never forget,
Full of love and joy—your best one yet!
