This poem of thanks was submitted to us from the family of Dan Ennis from the community of the Tobique First Nation in New Brunswick, Canada.

 

For This I Am Grateful

Ho Great Spirit!

I give thanks for this day.    

This precious gift of another day.  

Another growing.  

 

Another opportunity for growth.    

Another opportunity to grow and develop from my experiences.    

Another opportunity to be of service.    

Another opportunity to love and know and respect and accept myself just as I am.   

 

Another opportunity to be happy,

To pursue happiness, seek happiness and to share happiness.     

Another opportunity to enter into the womb of our Sacred Earth Mother.    

 

To enter the womb of love,

To enter the womb of peace.

To enter the Great Mystery,

To enter the Great Silence.

 

For This I Am Grateful

I give thanks for this sacred ceremony that helps me to recognize,

Acknowledge, accept and to give thanks for what I am. 

 

A creation of Great Creator.

A human being, a Wulustukyeg, guardian of our Sacred Earth Mother

And in this recognition, I am able to recognize my oneness.

My oneness with Great Creator.

I am one with Great Creator.

 

I am one with Creation, I am one with the universe,

I am one with the universal mind, I am one with Mother Earth,

I am one with the Great Mystery,

I am one with the Great Silence.

 

All My Relations,

Dan Ennis – November 2016
