Thanksgiving is here, so my mind has turned
To what time has taught me, to what I’ve learned:
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 brings.
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 my thoughts go directly to you.
 I wish you a Thanksgiving you’ll never forget,
Full of Peace, Luv and Joy—your best one yet!
