Happy Thanksgiving!

We come to this table today, O Lord, humble and thankful and glad. We thank thee first for the great miracle of life, for the exaltation of being human, for the capacity to love. We thank Thee for joys both great and simple-For wonder, dreams and hope; For the newness of each day; For laughter and song and a merry heart; For compassion waiting within to be kindled; For the forbearance of friends and the smiles of a stranger; For the arching of the earth and trees and heavens and the fruit of all three; For the wisdom of the old; For the courage of the young; For the promise of the child; For the strength that comes when needed; For this family united here today. Of those to whom much is given, much is required. May we and our children remember this.

{I found this prayer in the Today section of the Spokesman Review last year, Nov 2008  and I wanted to share it with everyone. Happy Thanksgiving!}
Love, The Campbells
