Happy Thanksgiving~A Poem For You

I have so much to give
Thanks for...SO much.

Thanks to my family,
Thanks to friends coming my way,
Thank you to everyone that
touches my day.

Thanks to my husband,
Thanks for my home,
Thanks for a resting place
wherever I roam.

Thanks for new babies,
Thanks for sweet life,
Thanks for allowing me
peace amidst strife.

Thanks for my children,
Thanks for grandchldren, too.
Thanks for the blessings
that fall on this crew.

Thanks for Thanksgiving,
As we gather this clan,
Bless every child in it
and woman and man.

Which brings us to the banquet,
The banquet of life,
Where some poor old turkey
Gave us his life.

We'll surround him with taters,
We'll smother him with peas,
We'll say, "Pass the gravy"
and Thank You and Please.

But let us remember,
As the table boards bend,
That all of this bounty
Belongs to God in the end.

Amen!

What a sweet birthday post. My daughter's is tomorrow and only a year behind him. How cool. Now let me pick my jaw up off the floor. Is that my vintage dream car that I want my husband to find! You have it! That is so funny. When my husband started working on vintage cars I told him I love the old Mercedes convertibles. I have a 2004, but not the same. Love yours. You know you want to leave it to me before your family!!

I loved that...it breaks your heart that they grow up doesn't it..especially a son. He is a handsome guy..Happy Birthday to him. (My daughters is tomorrow) :D

Pam said...

Come on, give him the car. You have totally embarrassed him on the internet with pictures of him in the sink and a bunny outfit, so you owe him something.

Diana,
So sweet of you to write this to him. My son was born in December of 1979. Our sons are two weeks apart and were both blond, blond.
Your sons silky blond hair was to die for.

Love your car!!!!

What a great post! I just popped over from To Everything a Season as I saw your comment and thought you were using a photo of Loni Anderson as your i.d. Turns out you just look like her! :)

Your son is lucky to have such a wonderful mother and such a beautiful wife!

Enjoy the Green Bay area for me! I have cousins there...
