On this and other holidays,
distance seems to keep us apart;
But family is never far away
when you feel them in your heart.
My wish for all my loved ones is
that they feel my love, so true,
On this and every day of the year
as they do what they have to do.
I'm thankful for my family -
all unique in their own way;
And hope that they are thankful, too,
On this Thanksgiving Day.
