Twas the Night of Thanksgiving ...

Twas the Night of Thanksgiving, but I just couldn't sleep, 
I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.

The leftovers beckoned - the dark meat and white,
but I fought the temptation with all of my might!

Tossing and turning with anticipation,
the thought of a snack became infatuation.

So, I raced (me and my little dog, Jake) to the kitchen, flung open the door,
and gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore!

I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.

I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
'til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky,
with a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie!

But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees,
"Happy eating to All, pass the cranberries, please!"

"May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump,
may your potatoes 'n gravy have nary a lump."

"May your yams be delicious, may your pies take the prize,

may your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs!"


I found the above poem while rummaging through my craft room.  Thought it was cute and wanted to share it with you all. 

 I also wanted to take a minute to wish Everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving!   During this Holiday, take time to count your blessing, thank the Lord above and take comfort that he is always near.  Say a prayer for those in need, those who need love or those who are neglected.  Pray for the sick and those who are hungry.  Pray for our troops and our country too!  

 If you have love to give - give it to Everyone, everywhere ... all the time!   IT DOES MAKE A DIFFERENCE.    I am thankful for you!! 

May God bless you and your family!  XOXO LeeAnn (& Jake)
