Giving Thanks, 2006

ere's to the bounty of the earth,
A nd to the eating that is nigh.
P ray, let us merrily increase our girth,
P iling our plates with mountains high of
Y ams, potatoes, turkey and pie.

T ake yourself a second slice,
H ave another piece of cake.
A nything goes, there is no price, for
N one of it will widen your waist.
K eeping tradition is surely nice,
S ince everyone knows this is the day that's
G iven completely to the notion,
(I nvented by a cook, so they say) when
V acation mindset gets in motion,
I nviting all to come and play.
N ow pile those plates up, everyone,
G rab the kids and have some fun!

'Twould be nice if it were so, but, alas, we all surely ain't! Nice to dream, though.

Hope your holiday is filled with family, friends, fun and food. And that somewhere in there, you find your heart filled with gratitude for the blessings that are yours.
