Happy Canadian Thanksgiving

Today is Thanksgiving here in Canada! To all readers who celebrate today, I wish you a wonderful holiday.

I wrote this poem about the turkey meal I will have today.

This is christyb wishing you a good great day.

The Thanksgiving Table

A gobble gobble here and then there

As we set the table for the upcoming meal,

Three plates and napkins too of course,

I am not the cook but I am pleased to be a guest at the table!


Let’s say a prayer at the table

For how thankful we are,

For the delicious food and also for loved ones,

Who give us a hand when we need to reach a higher step

And give us a smile when we succeed to the top.


I will enjoy the turkey, cranberry sauce, and stuffing

But most of all the love we pass with every dish

And the kindness we share at the table today.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you this day Christy and may that same thankfulness be carried on throughout all your family in the many days to come…

    Hugs from Alberta to all at the table.

      Yes Rolly, the thankfulness sentiment is one I try to show people I care about as often as I can. Life is too short and although many people say that and still do not act accordingly, I am not that type of person. Sending hugs back to you and hope your week is going great!

    I like the poem. And Happy Thanksgiving to you, although I’m a day late. I’m upset that I forgot to mention this on my own blog yesterday. I’ve been looking at it on my work calendar for a week, and then completely forgot.
