Giving Thanks
For the hay and the corn and the wheat that is reaped,
For the labor well done, and the barns that are heaped,
For the sun and the dew and the sweet honeycomb,
For the rose and the song and the harvest brought home --
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

For the trade and the skill and the wealth in our land,
For the cunning and strength of the workingman's hand,
For the good that our artists and poets have taught,
For the friendship that hope and affection have brought --
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

For the homes that with purest affection are blest,
For the season of plenty and well-deserved rest,
For our country extending from sea unto sea;
The land that is known as the "Land of the Free" --
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

What I'm thankful for today:
My dogs, Tiller and Tess,
My good health,
My sturdy home,
My wonderful school that provides me with a great education,
Living in a great country where I have so many freedoms and rights,
The opportunity to volunteer with Operation Smile,
My loving parents who take care of me and provide for me,
My sweet brother who is always there when I need him,
You, my sweet readers, who have helped me reach 100+ followers this month,
And numerous other things that I am forgetting,
however, I know that I am truly blessed and I thank God everyday for the many things I have in my life.

What are you for this Thanksgiving day?
