THANKSGIVING ADDRESS

Today we have gathered and we see that the cycles of life continue.
We have been given the duty to live in balance and harmony with each other and all living things.
So now, we bring our minds together as one as we give greetings and thanks to each other as people.
Now our minds are one.

 

We are thankful to our Mother, the Earth, for she gives us all that we need for life. She supports our feet as we walk about upon her.
It gives us joy that she continues to care for us as she has from the beginning of time. To our Mother, we send greetings and thanks.

 

We give thanks to all the Waters of the world for quenching our thirst and providing us with strength.
Water is life.
We know its power in many forms — waterfalls and rain, mists and streams, rivers and oceans.

 

With one mind, we send greetings and thanks to the spirit of Water.

 

Everything we need to live a good life is here on this Mother Earth. For all the love that is still around us, (we are thankful).
