Sending Thanksgiving Wishes

Thanksgiving Wishes
Sending all our Canadian soldiers away from home and soldiers at home, warm Thanksgiving wishes. We have so much to be thankful for ... YOU - for your dedication, your hard work, your bravery, your committment to your country, your difficult times when away from those you love. We also have families of soldiers to be thankful for - for the support and love of your soldier, difficult times you endure when they are away from you - your love and committment. We send you our prayers. ~m.m.

Happy Canadian Thanksgiving!

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.
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
Living day to day in a personal sacrifice

On a mission to defend.

You are the hero whose face we may never get to see

But the pride and glory that's lives in a soldier heart

Bears one word


On this day

We give thanks and honour to those brave and true

Our flags, we will proudly wave

The Red and White

We will give our thanks not only to our God

but also to every soldier for our bounties, that be.

For they give meaning to words

Home of the True north strong and Free.

To the soldiers in the mess hall

Eating their Thanksgiving feast,

to the troops in the desert eating

their next rationed meal.

May peace, hope and strength

Travel with you along the way

And may these wishes find you

On A Soldiers Thanksgiving day.
