"May your stuffing be tasty.
May your turkey 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."
"God help us to be grateful for our blessings,
never to be guilty of the sin of ingratitude,
and to instill this same gratitude
into the lives of our children."
"Never lose an opportunity
Of seeing anything that is beautiful.
For beauty is God's handwriting -
A wayside sacrament.
Welcome it in every fair face,
In every fair sky,
In every fair flower,
And thank God for it
As a cup of blessing."
"Reflect on your present blessings,
Of which every man has many,
Not on your past misfortunes,
Of which all men have some."
Have everyone at the dinner table go around and say one thing they're grateful for this Thanksgiving. This toast is simple yet effective and will have everyone remembering why they are gathered together in the first place!
