Sometimes it's the simplest things that cover the most ground. Long winded prayers and speeches have their place, but when it's time to carve the turkey, we really want to eat before it's cold. My papa wasn't one to piddle around and this was, with few exceptions, his blessing:
Kind and Gracious Heavenly Father,
Pardon our sins and receive our thanks for these and all our many blessings.
That pretty much covers it. Thank you God. Thank you friends and family. We have had such an incredible year! Have a blessed Thanksgiving!
