As I will be busy the next few days preparing for Thanksgiving, I figured on getting a head start by listing what I am most thankful for in poem and picture:
For sweeping skies of crystal blue
and mighty mountains standing tall;
For the new grown green of early spring
and the brightly colored leaves of fall;
For butterflies and singing birds,
Morning light and summer showers,
Treasured books, filled with words
a special place to read for hours;
For Christmas trees and twinkling lights,
For gathering with those most dear.
For silent snow that frosts the night
and dreams of peace to conquer fear;
For delicate flowers and a star-spangled sky,
For the marvel that is our universe,
For the sense of wonder as we try
to unravel things mysterious;
For the light and warmth of the golden sun,
For ocean waves that rush to shore,
For spending time just having fun
with my close friends, whom I adore,
For those who love and care for me
my family, how I love them so
the best of times, most certainly;
For all there is to learn and know
and all the things I’ve yet to do,
I’m filled with heartfelt gratitude.
Count your blessings this Thanksgiving. You will be amazed at how many you have!
Happy Thanksgiving to all!
