A Thanksgiving Poem
Author Unknown

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 to the kitchen, flung open the door
And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.
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.
May your Thanksgiving be blessed!!

Thanks & Giving: All Year Long - Marlo Thomas - An exceedingly handsome book with enough stories, songs, poems, and beautifully reproduced art to make it a worthy purchase - especially since the proceeds go to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.

Larry's Review: Marlo Thomas has used her celebrity to organize a group of accomplished writers, artists, and actors to write stories about giving and being thankful. A great book for kids and adults AND it supports a worthy cause.
Thanks & Giving: All Year Long

"Gratitude unlocks the fulness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. Gratitude makes sense of the past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow."

Melody Beattie, author, "Codependent No More
