To all My Blogging Friends and Foes









Wishing all my fellow blogger's and blog readers a most excellent Thanksgiving Day.

I will tell you what I am thankful for.

I am thankful to be alive, not entirely sure yet why, but I am.

I am thankful for my son, EJ.

I am thankful for my friends and neighbors.

I am thankful for the food I eat, and the shelter I have.

I am thankful for the car I drive.

I am thankful that I have my faith, which seems to be getting stronger all the time.

I am thankful for my enemies, for without them, I would not know how wonderful my friends are.

I am thankful that I can breathe, and walk, and speak.

I am thankful for every living thing that grows.

I am even thankful for spiders, as they eat flies.

I am thankful for the ability to express my ideas, and to feel all the emotions that ramble through my heart.

I am thankful for all of you.

I am thankful for the humor in the world.

I am thankful that one day I will be reunited with all those who have gone before me. "And a blessed day that will be."

I am thankful that I can laugh at myself. And, I do so, quite often.

I could probably write a thousand more things, and I am thankful for that, because there was a time I was thankful for nothing. Let the dark waters not close over you and may the world you know be full of sun and cloudless skies.

(Unless you need the rain)

Thanksgiving is here

Its time to pray

Please Lord help me

Get through this day!


The kids are home

The school is closed

They're spraying each other

With the garden hose


The turkey bird

Is still half frozen

And, look, Oh God!

It's dear Aunt Rose and


Uncle Larry

And cousin Tim

My brother and sister

And all their kin


How will I cook up

All this stuff

And still look as soft

As a powder puff


I feel like a soldier

going into battle

I walk the perimeter

But no word rhymes with battle.....

That I can think of.


At all.

Now we must pause for a brief intermission:
