Giving Thanks

Hello Friends!

We're at that time of year when the sand in the hourglass runs out very fast, and it all starts with Thanksgiving Day. We are off to the races, i.e. the grocery store, department store, wherever there are ingredients we need, or gifts to buy! I can feel the excitement building!

I do love the season; but, even though we are doing things with shrinking wallets, it doesn't mean it will mean any less to us. We must remember that families and friends are what we are most thankful for, and thank them accordingly.

Let's give thanks this week for everyone in our lives who has blessed us. Don't forget to take in all of the wonderful fragrances of the holiday feast--I can smell that turkey, and that pumpkin pie--yum!

Bless us all!

P.S. I've added a little poem that I whipped up for the occasion. Don't worry, it's calorie free!


It is time to gather family and friends
Around the laden table
To forgive and make amends

Tis time to count our many blessings
Reflect on nature’s bounty
Amid pie, turkey and dressing

It’s time again to follow custom
Handed down through generations
Let’s eat until we bust em!
