"Dear Lord, I want to thank you from my heart for another year of freedom in our country. . .freedom to give thanks openly to you for all the blessings of life.
Thank you Lord for giving us this property to host events.
Thank you for giving us family and friends who want to share the day with us.
Thank you for the love that can be felt running all through the house/shop,
out in the yard, around the tables. . .it isn't something that everyone has at their
Lord, thank you for all the loads of food we once again had on the table.
It seems like everyone here wants to do "their share" of blessing others.
I am so blessed!
Thank you for all the many years of Thanksgivings, just like this one today
that I spent at my Pappy and Granny Bare's home. . . Or with my
Grandma and Grampa Banks. . .
Or at my own parents home when their folks were too old and tired to
continue having things at their home.
We are Family. . .family with so much love we can even give it to others who
come by. . .with so much happiness we won't lose anything by sharing it with you. . .
God you have blessed us with the things in life that really matter most
and it our duty and our pleasure to bless others.
Your Child, krp"
