We are all 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. ✨ We give thanks to all the waters of the world for quenching our thirst & providing us with strength. WATER IS LIFE. ✨With one mind, we turn to honor all the Food Plants we harvest from the garden. Since the beginning of time, the grains, vegetables, beans and berries have helped the people & animals survive. ✨Now we turn to all the Medicine herbs of the world. From the beginning they were instructed to take away sickness. They are always waiting & ready to heal us. ✨We gather our minds together to send greetings & thanks to all the Animal life in the world. They have many things to teach us as people. ✨We now turn our gratitude to the Trees and plant life. Some provide us with shelter & shade, others with fruit, beauty & other useful things✨We are all thankful to the powers we know as the Four Winds. We hear their voices in the moving air as they refresh us & purify the air we breathe. ✨Now we turn to the west where our grandfathers, the Thunder Beings, live. With lightning and thundering voices, they bring with them the water that renews life. ✨We now send greetings and thanks to our eldest Brother, the Sun. Each day without fail he travels the sky from east to west, bringing the light of a new day. ✨We put our minds together to give thanks to our oldest Grandmother, the Moon, who lights the night-time sky. She is the leader of woman all over the world & she governs the movement of the ocean tides. ✨We give thanks to the Stars who are spread across the sky like jewelry. We see them in the night, helping the Moon to light the darkness & when we travel at night, they guide us home. ✨We gather our minds to greet & thank the enlightened Teachers who have come to help throughout the ages. When we forget how to live in harmony, they remind us of the way we were instructed to live as people. ✨Now we turn our thoughts to the creator & send greetings and thanks for all the gifts of Creation. Everything we need to live a good life is here on this Mother Earth. ✨Now our minds are one. 🙏🌙🌞✨🌍
