A beautiful prayer, adapted from the Iroquois Nation, for this season of Thanksgiving:
We return thanks to our Mother, the earth, which sustains us.
We return thanks to the rivers and streams, which supply us with water.
We return thanks to all herbs, which furnish medicines for the cures of diseases.
We return thanks to the corn, and to her sisters, the beans and the squashes, which give us life.
We return thanks to the wind, which, moving the air, has banished diseases.
We return thanks to the moon and the stars, which have given to us their light when the sun was gone.
We return thanks to the Sun, who has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye.
Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit, in whom is embodied all goodness,
and who directs all things for the good of Earth's children.
Let us please remember all that we have, seen and unseen, to be grateful for in this season of Thanksgiving. Let us be grateful. Every day. For every tiny thing. Each breath, each smile, each sun rise and sunset. Do not forget to be grateful each morning and each evening. Living in gratitude is life eternal. I bless you with gratitude and happiness always.
