At times our own light goes out
and is rekindled
by a spark from another person.

Each of us has cause to think
with deep gratitude
of those who
have lighted the flame within us.

. . . May your stuffing be tasty,
May your turkey be plump,
May your potatoes and gravy
Have nary a lump.

May your yams be delicious,
And your pies take the prize,
And may your Thanksgiving dinner
Stay off your thighs!

. . . and sing your song of joy . . .
And as we prepare for this
our Thanksgiving Day  . . .
2nd week in October (in Canada)
I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought;
and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.

I am grateful
. .for your support,

and submissions.
    . . and for all the wonderful
        friends and pen pals Morning
Star has brought me.
            . . to all those unknown artists
               whose graphics are so freely available;
                    and to all those creative musicians
                    who make their music media (midis)
                    so freely available.

    I am thankful
            . . for the loving friends and family I have;
                they enrich my life beyond measure.
    . . I am grateful that my needs are met,
        and most of my wants are fulfilled.
My life is truly abundantly blessed.
I am humbly thankful.
