Happy Thanksgiving to everyone!
I would like to share this space to wish everyone in cyberland a heartfelt Happy Thanksgiving.
It seems like each year that goes by I get involved with the food preparations, house cleaning for guests and so on. I forget to take the time to celebrate what Thanksgiving is really about - being THANKFUL. I am slowly learning to NOT take things for granted, life is short. What we do not take time to appreciate and be thankful for today may not be here tomorrow. This year has been very hard for us - but it was an eye opener and I have became more aware. I don't take my husband for granted, our health for granted nor the love and support of the rest of our wonderful family and friends. When it comes down to it, isn't love and support what really makes life wonderful?
Love, Light & Happiness!
For the hay and the corn and the wheat that is reaped,
For the labor well done, and the barns that are heaped,
For the sun and the dew and the sweet honeycomb,
For the rose and the song and the harvest brought home --
For the trade and the skill and the wealth in our land,
For the cunning and strength of the workingman's hand,
For the good that our artists and poets have taught,
For the friendship that hope and affection have brought --
For the homes that with purest affection are blest,
For the season of plenty and well-deserved rest,
For our country extending from sea unto sea;
The land that is known as the "Land of the Free" --
Tell me, Mr. Turkey,
Don't you feel afraid
When you hear us talking
'Bout the plans we've made?
Can't you hear us telling
How we're going to eat
Cranberries and stuffing
With our turkey meat?
Turkey, heed my warning:
Better fly away;
Or you will be sorry
On Thanksgiving day.
