I'm Grateful

Behold our family here assembled.

We are grateful for this place in which we dwell,
for the love that unites us,
for the peace accorded us this day,
for the hope with which we expect tomorrow;
for the health, the work, the food and the bright skies
that make our lives delightful;
for our friends in all parts of the earth.

Give us courage and joy and the quiet mind.
Keep us to our friends, soften us to our enemies.
Bless us, if it may be, in all our innocent endeavors;
if it may not, give us the strength to endure that which is to come,
that we may be brave in peril,
constant in tribulation, temperate in anger
and in all changes of life, and down to the gates of death,
loyal and loving to one another.

Robert Louis Stevenson, 1850-1894

…for the love that unites us…
…for the peace accorded us this day…

… for the health, the work, the food and the bright skies …
…that makes our lives delightful…
…Keep us to our friends…
… loyal and loving to one another.
…for the peace…
…for the work…

Happy Thanksgiving 2019
