To all who read this Happy Thanksgiving. What are you thankful for this year? We have much to be thankful for – our family and friends old and new, reasonably good health, a new roof over our head, a kitty to remind us when we have not spent enough time with her and Bob and I have each other.
Bob and I leave on Wednesday to see our friends Lyn and Bob in Charleston SC, just 4 hours from here and return on Friday. We have tickets on Saturday for the afternoon performance of Mannheim Steamroller Christmas Show so I guess that means we will be kicking off the Christmas season at the Choban home.
More Than A Day
As Thanksgiving Day rolls around,
It brings up some facts, quite profound.
We may think that we’re poor,
Feel like bums, insecure,
But in truth, our riches astound.
We have friends and family we love;
We have guidance from heaven above.
We have so much more
Than they sell in a store,
We’re wealthy, when push comes to shove.
So add up your blessings, I say;
Make Thanksgiving last more than a day.
Enjoy what you’ve got;
Realize it’s a lot,
And you’ll make all your cares go away.

T is for the trust the pilgrims had so many years ago
H is for the harvest the settlers learnt to grow
A is for America, the land in which we live
N is for nature and beauty which she gives
K is for kindness, gentle words, thoughtful deeds
S is for smiles, the sunshine everyone needs
G is for gratitude… our blessings big and small
I is for ideas, letting wisdom grow tall
V is for voices, singing, laughing, always caring
I is for Indians, who taught them about sharing
N is for neighbors, across the street, over the sea
G is for giving of myself to make a better me
