Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)

For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

This is a little poem I used with my students last week to get them thinking about thankfulness.
Thanks to our singing teachers, Chris and Donna, they had a wonderful collection of songs for the adults after dinner. The kids love singing and performing and of course we all love listening, so we were each the happier for it.
