dawn said...

yes there is much to be thankful for...
that TeenBoy did not sever an artery putting his hand thru his window
that TeenBoy did not break his leg falling thru the ceiling
that my kids smiled and stood still kind of long enough for my mom to take their pictures...
yes, there was much to be thankful for this Thanksgiving!

OMG how are you? I have missed so much! Sorry I don't stop by like I should. I tried so hard to stay up on my blog... and I guess you can say I have given up. life is just way to hectic right now. I keep telling myself when the kids are all in school I an do all the things I want to do... but I am sure Iw ill find another way to occupy that time! :D How is everything going for you? How was your thanksgiving?

Joanna Jenkins said...

I couldn't agree with you more! And I'm thankful for you and all my blog friends who inspire me all the time.

Cheers to you and yours, xo jj

Adrienne in Ohio said...

Lovely poem, Becky. Don't you just love that Thanksgiving remains largely un-commercialized. It makes it easier to focus on the important stuff. :)

I smiled when I saw the Toys R Us ad. Ours is ragged, and all the pages of the girl toy section are stapled together so the boys don't waste precious time flipping through unnecessary pages. They have dog-eared it and circled just about everything. LOL

I hope you had a great Thanksgiving!
