Thanksgiving Blessings

Before my vacation from the net I wanted to send out Thanksgiving Blessings to everyone. I wish you all a joyous holiday with family and friends. Eat much. Love much. Laugh much.
(c) Unknown

We return thanks to our mother, the earth, which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams, which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs, which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and stars, which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to the sun, that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit, in Whom is embodied all goodness, and Who directs all things for the good of Her children.
~Iroquois Prayer, adapted


A Haudenosaunee "Thanksgiving" Prayer

(I think this is a lovely way to give thanks if choosing not to do the traditional Christian form of Grace, click to view) 

Blessings from my home to yours.
