Happy American Thanksgiving! I feel a bit like a fraud, as I'm a Canadian in the US, but kind colleagues have been wonderful enough to invite me to a turkey dinner today. We had our first snowfall yesterday, and I'm trying to get used to this late thanksgiving tradition, which seems to mix with the beginnings of Christmas festivities, and then there's the whole Black Friday thing. Despite my slight confusion, it does give me an opportunity to stop & think about what I should be grateful for.
I think Raffi says it best:
All I really need is a song in my heart
Food in my belly and love in my family
All I really need is a song in my heart
And love in my family

And I need the rain to fall
And I need the sun to shine
To give life to the seeds we sow
To give the food we need to grow, grow

All I really need is a song in my heart
Food in my belly and love in my family
All I really need is a song in my heart
And love in my family

And I need some clean water for drinking
And I need some clean air for breathing
So that I can grow up strong
And take my place where I belong

All I really need is a song in my heart
Food in my belly and love in my family
All I really need is a song in my heart
And love in my family

I'm grateful for food in my belly, the rain & sun, and the love of family & friends.
