Wishing All A Happy Thanksgiving!


Oh my, it seems that this glorious Autumn Season is passing by so quickly.... I am so excited for Thanksgiving, and it will soon be here.... Yummy food, shared with family and friends! Is there anything better?
By stepping outside and feeling the Arctic winds, I realize that I will soon have to say good bye to my Autumn friend...
So, with a few more Autumn days left ahead, I am going to soak up every bit that I can, I may even dance with the leaves that are so gracefully blowing around in the wind :)

I wanted to wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving day!



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 --
I give thanks...

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 --
I give thanks...

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" --
I give thanks...
