Happy Thanksgiving!


Thanksgiving, a day of thanks for all our blessings. Last year I wrote a list of a few things I am especially thankful for and that list still holds. I’ll be busy baking all day today and tomorrow I have guests coming so I won’t be around again until next week, but wanted to come on here and wish everyone who celebrates Thanksgiving a glorious holiday. And a very happy, peaceful day for those of you in places not celebrating Thanksgiving. Since I’m pressed for time I’m re-posting one of my old Thanksgiving poems. Love you all! ❤


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.
