I thought of bringing out my blog on this happy day.
Thanksgiving, originally a harvest festival, celebrated in the US and Canada(in the US it is celebrated on the fourth Thursday of November) is a day of gratitude for all the blessings that have been received during the past year. The main attraction of the day, is the Thanksgiving dinner,which is mainly centered on a large roasted turkey. It is the day when all the family members and friends gather together and spend a wonderful and memorable time with each other.
As for me, this day reminds me of the abundance with which God has blessed me.
I thank You dear Almighty for bringing me into this world,
A universe where both good and evil are in constant conflict.
Why should I resent that, or snivel over it?
Since You never promised us that the sea of life will be unruffled.
I am grateful for my two guardian angels
Who watched me down here with love and care.
No chance to express even a bit of dissatisfaction
As I was fully content in being their little girl.
Thankful I am for all the dear and near ones around me,
From them I have learned valuable lessons,
Lessons that can be derived and comprehended
Only from this greatest institution called Life.
Grateful I am for the abundance of
Food, clothing and shelter
For the health and wealth
That You have provided.
Blessed with a beautiful family,
With my precious little one by my side.
I gaze into his laughing eyes,
And listen to the pitter-patter of his footsteps.
I am thankful for the beauty all around me
For who and what I am.
Grateful for the 'Now', the moment I live,
Always ready to welcome a new tomorrow.
