I'm a writer, not a poet, but......

I'm thankful for my family
and what they mean to me
I'm thankful for my country
and for being free.

I'm thankful for my home
and the food we eat
I'm thankful for the pies
and all the rolls and meat.

But, most of all I'm thankful
for each and every day
God sees fit to grant us
to work and love and play.

Here's an old piece of paper that was my mom's. As you can see, it is old, yellowed and torn.
I'm often guilty of complaining about the many dishes I wash each day. I keep this on my fridge as a reminder of some of the little things I should be thankful for.

Maybe we should remember this as we are faced with a sink full of dirty dishes throughout today.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING TO ALL and may God bless you and yours.
