In England, 
there is no indication that Thursday is Thanksgiving
in the United States

Thanksgiving is not ear-marked in the year
as a day off from school or work
It is just like any other day

But for us, it will still be
a time to share a meal with friends and family
void of gifts but full of friendship, food, and American football

An evening set aside to reflect on all things we are grateful for and 
an opportunity to stop and count our blessings

One of the loveliest holidays in its purity and lack of commercialism

Wishing your heart and home are warm with friends and family
and countless blessings
