To all my American friends I want to wish you a HAPPY THANKSGIVING and a wonderful day to all those who aren’t celebrating Thanksgiving.

Here is a poem I shared back in 2013 @ by Janice Spina.

A Thanksgiving Poem:

This is the time of year.

That we take time to cheer.

And be thankful for all our blessings!

We celebrate this holiday with our loves ones.

A prayer of thanks will be said before and after too.

We will hold hands and bow our heads until it is through.

We will then enjoy a wonderful repast.

That will add pounds on our frames that just seem to last and last!

There will be turkey, stuffing, and gravy galore.

Pass your plate and it will be filled with more.

There will be squash, rolls, green bean, and peas.

And of course lots of desserts if you please!

We will sip a little wine or a port or two.

And enjoy each other’s company and share news and stories, just a few.

At the end of the day we will feel refreshed with food and love that is shared.

Another wonderful Thanksgiving Day by all is declared!

Thank you for stopping by and for your continued support!


Thought for the day: Share your blessings with others in need today! What better time than during the holidays when some people are alone. Give to those in need through charities such as GoodWill, Lazarus House, Toys for Tots, Paralyzed Vets, and many more. Thank you! God Bless!

Blessings & Hugs!
