Thanksblessing

Let us give thanks & ecstatic praise
to the Earth & the farmers in the fields,
for their shared part in providing this meal.
May we keep them in our hearts and care for them always.

Let us give thanks & ecstatic praise
to our extended family & near-dear friends
& unconditional love ’til after the end.
May we never forget the miracle of time together.

Let us give thanks & ecstatic praise
to our ancestors, elders, rivals & saints
for blazing us trails & showing us ways.
May we remember their many forms of teachings
& put their wisdom to action whenever we can.

Let us give thanks & ecstatic praise
for today most of all –
what a wonderful time to be here now!
Present company’s what it’s all about.
May we stay grateful for what we got
& be eternally compassionate.
Bless-ed
Amen.
