I found this Thanksgiving Blessing by Brian McLaren in a local advertiser from Sussex County NJ -
We have rested, and we think of all those whose lives are hard and who enjoy little rest.
We have eaten the fruit of our labors, and we think of those who have neither work or money.
We have feasted, and we think of all those whose stomachs are hungry and have too little.
We have felt safe and at home, and we think of those who live in danger and turmoil, in war and fear, and all who have been driven from their homes.
We have been together, and we think of all those who are lonely and alone.
We have laughed, and we think of all those whose hearts are heavy.
We have shared stories, and we think of all those who need a listening ear.
We have counted our blessings, and we ask that our gratitude can now be translated into the desire to be a blessing to others.
