With today being the last homeroom before Thanksgiving, let us take this time to go around the room and name a person, thing, feeling, etc that you are thankful for.

Let us pray, God of blessings, we pray that we might be able to take this spirit of thanksgiving and appreciation and apply it to seasons other than just this one. May we realize the vast amount of blessings in our own lives, and work towards letting the people we are appreciative of know how we feel. 
We pray this in the name of all that is good and holy. AMEN
