Needles-n-Pins Stitcheries: A Thanksgiving Poem

Thanksgiving is a time to be thankful for all the blessings we have. Personally I am thankful everyday for the blessing I have...a wonderful family.....wonderful friends...and just being alive. So on this special day of Thanks I thought I would share a poem by Joanna Fuchs with all of you. :)
Thanksgiving Feasting

When the Halloween pumpkins are gone,
And the leaves have all fallen to ground,
When the air has turned windy and cold,
Then Thanksgiving will soon be around.

Thoughts of loved ones all feasting together,
Pleasant pictures from past times appear
To dwell in each heart and each mind--
Then Thanksgiving is finally here!

The kitchen has scrumptious aromas,
The dining room looks oh, so fine,
Decorations with pilgrims and turkeys,
And now we are ready to dine!

First the napkins are placed on our laps;
Now the prayer for the meal to be blessed,
Then we stuff the good food in our tummies,
And we hope for it all to digest!
So if you are like me and eat wayyyyyyyy to much you will agree on wanting it all to digest! I hope each and everyone of you have a very Happy Thanksgiving. And if you are traveling to family and friends please be safe! :)
