Thanksgiving Day - Thanks

I am Thank-ful for the Fellowship of AA
I celebrate my First "sober" Thanksgiving day
I am Thank-ful for my Gracious Higher Power
I gave HIM my Will; My Life for 24 hours

I am Thank-ful for my Sponsor, Giving me a Big Book
Read the first 164 pages, then take a look
At the Past,the Present; of my Heart, Spirit and Soul
Do You want what we have?, Do You want to be Whole??

I am Thank-ful for Guidance; as I climb the stairs
As a Newborn Child I climb, little by slowly, One Step at a Time
2 meetings a day, I Listen intently to what "Oldtimers" say
I hear of the Miracle; the Truth, I now live Everyday

A daily routine, a Thank-ful Prayer, to my Higher POWER
From the break of Dawn's rising sun,'til Moonlights Midnight Hour
I am Thank-ful to Every member of A A
To each Brother and Sister, I want to say
Have a "Happy, Joyous, and Free" Thanksgiving Day
