HAPPY THANKSGIIVING


Hi everyone taking a moment to wish
you all Happy Thanksgiving
above my grateful message could not put it in better words.
Even if you do not celebrate
 the words mean the same 
from me to you.
I will be missing in action for the next 
few days no new post until MONDAY,
due to the holiday officially Thanksgiving day is tomorrow.
 and in case you all did not know,
 I'm the cook in 
my family and enjoy spending time
making everyone smile.
I also need to chill after cooking that big meal.

Below is two poems from me to you.

THANKSGIVING IS 
Be Grateful
Giving thanks to all we have.
Welcome family and friends join in the feast,
but do not forget the need.
Pray for someone to be fed and for peace,
While we sharing bread.
Thanksgiving is 
blessing and be thankful
with a grateful heart.
