Hope you have a joyful Thanksgiving! I found this sweet poem and wanted to share it with you.
Thanksgiving Tradition and Family
At the dinner table, all circled round;
Our Grandma and Grandpa, Momma and Dad.
All of us children so ready to eat;
A Thanksgiving feast, like we’ve never had.
Grandpa gives thanks for all the years gone by;
For all his children and the pumpkin pie.
For Grandma’s love and all her faithful care;
Then tears fall from my grandma’s eyes.
Grandma chimes in with her words very wise;
With thanks to the Lord with all He provides.
Mamma leans over to give her a hug;
And the love echoes-from every side.
Then daddy prays a Thanksgiving prayer;
With warmth and love from the depths of his soul.
For the food, and all of God’s many blessings;
Then the food comes around, “please pass the rolls.”
Green beans, potatoes and corn on the cob;
Turkey with stuffing and giblet gravy.
Washing the dishes and watching football;
Thanksgiving tradition and family.
Thanksgiving day is a very good day;
A day of praise, a day of memories.
A day to cherish most faithfully;
Because we are blessed, because we are free.
The main reason is because God is good;
And that He watches over us with heed.
Just as He watches over each sparrow;
And gives life to a newly planted seed.
