Poem: Thanksgiving at Grandma’s



Thanksgiving at Grandma’s

Grandma’s pumpkin pies

Cinnamon, ginger, all spice…

the scents of heaven.

The old farm house…

filled with family,

filled with love.

Grandpa saying grace…

Giving thanks for family, friends…life.

The crackling of logs on the fire

bringing warmth to the chill of Autumn.

Grandma’s smile…

bringing warmth to our hearts.

Bowing my head with the others

I give thanks…

For Thanksgiving at Grandma’s.

Have a very happy Thanksgiving…Elizabeth

  7. Hey ! Happy Thanksgiving!. !! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂
    Thanksgiving is 1 of my favorite holidays, and each year I like to get into the mood-extend the holiday, as it were-by reading “Thanksgiving novels.” Not surprisingly, those stories are mostly about family, about coming together to heal old hurts and showing thanks for the gift of love. . . . – – –
