In the lifetime of a human being
There are many things to be grateful for
Too numerous perhaps to consider individually
And yet
In the open, roaring sea of my gratitude
I see you;
I am overcome
Most of all
When I consider you.

Happy Thanksgiving

    Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

  16. I find your site very soothing and your writing entertaining. But, what I enjoy the most are the photos. Are you the photographer? If you are sharing, I would like directions to make your critter…..I had to laugh, it looks like my dog (except for the red nose).

  17. Thank you for sharing these touching words and the most amazing photo! Happy Thanksgiving, and all the very best to you!
