God, today, we gather in a way that others may not be able. We enjoy the blessings of warmth, shelter, and provision. Thanks for giving us this time and this meal. You are The Provider, so we offer you our first thanks. And God, thank you for the family and the friends who are joining us today. May our conversations be bright, may we be grateful for each other, and give us the courage to be appreciative of each other. For those who cannot be with us today, we remember them and celebrate them in their absence. Bless this meal to our bodies. Amen.
HAPPY AMERICAN THANKSGIVING
