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 for 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 grandchildren, 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.

Told you it was an old poem

but some things never change.

Thank you to everyone that has stuck

here over the years and been part of

my blogging world.

Love to all of you-

Diana, Sending prayers to you and yours. Hope your Thanksgiving is filled with family time and love. I think of you and John often. You are in my prayers too. I will be having a dinner with my daughter Kathy...just she and I. Not ready to gather in big groups yet. We have had shots and boosters but still cautious. Hug John for me. Love you both. Blessings, xoxo, Susie
p.s. this time in 2018 you and John came to the St. Vincent's hospital to see Ted and pray. Seems like yesterday and yet years . Time is strange.
