Our Thanksgiving prayer today

Dear Lord,
Today as we remember our last Thanksgiving, we come to you with thankful hearts.
The memory of last year with Mother with us, is so fresh,
With heads bowed in her den,
we gave thanks for our blessings then. A year later on this special
day, we give thanks again, for all you have blessed us with.
Our incredible journey over this last year and the 5 months before,
could only have been possible with You leading us.
Everything she held dear in this world, is right here in this room,
with the exception of Katie and Kevin and their families. We thank you for our family,
for Mother and Daddy who created our family, for Papa being our other Daddy
when he married Gaga, for the extended family members
who have been added through marriage
and for all these grandchildren that she loved dearly
and now, great grandchildren joining us to be part
of our family. We ask for your continued blessings
over all of us and we thank you for our journey, for all of our parents
and for all the other family members and friends who are
celebrating with You today. We pray for those who are away from their families,
for those who are having a first Thanksgiving without a loved one
, for all the men and women who are at war, fighting for our freedom,
May your blessings be showered down on them all today so they can feel
Your presence in their lives.
Thank you for our time together, thank you for this food
and most of all, Lord, we thank You for the hope that we have in You.
In Your most Holy name,
