Greatest Blessings...

I've come to realize over the years,
that the every day things
are our greatest blessings:
the food on the table,
our country, our homes
our family and friends,
our health and well-being,
the very air we breathe and
the sunshine that warms the earth.
And it's these things that we
should be the most grateful for
as we celebrate Thanksgiving;
for they give us comfort and strength,
filling our hearts with gladness
and making each day meaningful.
And it's my Thanksgiving wish
that as my family and friends
gather to celebrate Thanksgiving
that they will remember to be thankful
for the simple blessings
they receive every day.
