Thanksgiving Grace: An Old Scottish Blessing
My late husband’s favorite grace, recited with a Scottish burr and good whiskey in hand:
Some hae meat and cannae eat.
Some nae meat but want it.
We hae meat and we can eat
and sae the Lord be thankit.
Translated: Some have meat and cannot eat. Some no meat but want it. We have meat and we can eat and so the Lord be thanked.
