Thanksgiving Grace: An Old Scottish Blessing

My late husband’s favorite grace, recited with a Scottish burr and good whiskey in hand:

A Selkirk Grace

 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.
