Thanksgiving Day

While going through the holidays calendar, I stumbled upon the upcoming Thanksgiving day.
Technology has made it possible for people, around the World, to get familiar with the festivals, which are celebrated in other parts of the World, besides their own.
In any case, the idea behind celebrating festivals, remains the same everywhere.

To celebrate the gift of life, to spend quality time with the loved ones, family and friends, to spread happiness, to enjoy delicious food and drinks.

During this process, we rejuvenate, recharge ourselves, with plenty of positive energy and positive thoughts.
Although, I vaguely understand what is the significance of the Thanksgiving day, I googled it, out of curiosity, to know more about this important day. And needless to say, I was overwhelmed to know, about the noble aim to celebrate this day.

Then, the thought of saying thanks or showing gratitude, for what I have in life, occurred in my mind. Honestly, I was amazed, at the countless number of thank you, I will have to say!
Here I am listing, only few of them, through my poem.

Countless Reasons to Say Thanks—My Poem.

My humble thanks to the Heavens,

With folded hands and a heart full of gratitude,

For the bright Sunshine, of the mornings,

And the cool Moonlight, of the nights,

To give me another day, full of possibilities.


My humble thanks, to the Heavens,

With folded hands and a heart full of gratitude,

For the infinite Sky, the Oceans, the rivers,

The forests, the rain, the wind, the Earth,

And all the small and big creatures.


My humble thanks to the Heavens,

With folded hands and a heart full of gratitude,

For the crops, the food, the clothes and the shelter,

For the good health, happiness and luxuries of life,

For the music and song and the education.


With folded hands and a heart full of gratitude,

I want to sincerely thank my dear parents,

For the innumerable sacrifices made by them,

for their selfless and unconditional love,

their affection, care and sincere efforts.


With folded hands and a heart full of gratitude,

I want to sincerely thank my husband and dear children,

My siblings, friends and families, my teachers and helpers,

And anyone or everyone, who has been kind and helpful,

To make me a better person and has been a part of my life.


Saying countless number of Thanks,

May Seem dramatic, but believe me, it’s not,

You really never know, how much more time,

Do you or your dear ones may have,

So, never shy away, to express your gratitude.

        Thank you Peggy Woods, for reading and commenting on this hub.

        I agree with your thoughts that life is so short and we must be thankful for what we have, each day. To be grateful to the people around us, to the Mother Nature is so important.

        Glad you liked the theme of the poem.

        Wish you a blessed day. Thank You.

        You so beautifully listed the numerous things of which to be thankful in your lovely poem. Life is so short and as we open our eyes each day we never know how that day might end. We should all take the opportunity to be grateful for the people and things in our lives including Mother Nature.

        Hope you are having an enjoyable time with your family on Thanksgiving Day.

        Kept on follow. "Countless" is too small a number I decided. My boy and I discussed the difference between infinity and 100 trillion ;-) We decided that Gratitude is infinite. Thanks for you is among mine.

        Beautiful and charming song and note your special thanks to mother nature and the cosmos in so many diverse ways.

        Gratitude is a big one for us and for Sri Chinmoy. It is no less than the life-breath of God. Thank you so much, my Didi Ji. Guruji bless your loving Heart and wonderful family.

        I am glad you liked my photos. I love taking pictures and nowadays it’s much easier to take pictures, because of mobile phone cameras. Thanks for appreciating.

        Thank you Ericdierker, for your wonderful comments!

        I am glad that you liked the thoughts expressed in this poem.

        At the end of the day, it doesn’t matter, who is richer or more beautiful. Only thing, which matters is, whether you are happy or not. People with all Worldly luxuries may not be as happy as a child playing in the garden.

        My best wishes to you and your family. A Happy Thanksgiving Day!

        What a wonderful piece. We are so blessed in my family and community. I like to say that riches abound. Yet we are what is known as the lower middle class.

        I surely do like your poem. Nearly tears here. For you have given me one more thing to be thankful for.

        What beautiful sentiments, Chitrangada. Even those of us who don't celebrate Thanksgiving can still give thanks to so much we have been provided with in life, and often take for granted. This is a lovely hub, poem, and photos.
