As we sit down at this table, we are grateful.

I look around at the faces of the people I love—and who love me—and I am grateful.

We are blessed beyond what is reasonable.

We are blessed with this room, this table, this home, these friends, and this amazing food.

We are so grateful for the abundance in our lives.

We are so grateful for our health, and the continuing health of the people in our circle of light.

Please bless the world today. May it be more peaceful because of our thanksgiving. May it be more safe. May it be more fair and just.

And may we all take this feeling of blessing, abundance, fullness, and light out into the world.
