Thanksgiving is upon us again and while you’re enjoying a table full of delicious food, family, friends, and football try to reflect on the meaning of the day. This year please take a moment to be grateful for all the blessings in your life – the food you eat every day, the roof over your head, the clothes you wear, and the family you love.
This Thanksgiving please give thanks for the men and women in our armed forces. Remember them on this festive day; remember the sacrifices they make and be thankful of their willingness to be the “empty plate” at Thanksgiving dinner.
From all of us at American Warehouse Systems; God Bless and Have a Wonderful Thanksgiving.
For All We Have
by Roger J. Robicheau
A table with chairs, that welcome sight
Our family, our friends, pure delight
A caring kiss with a gentle smile
Each tender hug lasts that country mile
The presence of love so fills the air
This gift of God brings our hearts so near
Reflections of past bring nurtured thought
Great visions come by, what life has taught
In thankful ways we embrace this day
And often think of loved ones away
Those serving us proud are often gone
But their spirit remains, closely drawn
Our Nation should praise each special one
For all we have is through what they’ve done
The freedom to have Thanksgiving Day
Keeps certain plates bare, please truly pray
