The moon shone bright, as visions of stuffing danced in their heads.
They gobbled as they ran, for this was the night they came to dread.
For tomorrow would soon come, and their fates would be sealed.
With mashed potatoes and trimmings, their glory’s revealed.
What are you thankful for?
Thanksgiving is only 2 weeks away!
In early November
our thoughts turn
to dreams of turkey.
With grateful hearts
and joyful thanksgiving,
we wait in anticipation dreaming of turkey.
Stop and listen!
For something turkey this way comes!
A delicious bird
cooked golden brown
oh, the turkey dreams.
Not a thought is given
to his ultimate demise,
he now lives on only in turkey dreams.

Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower. ~Albert Camus
Happy November, focus on your blessings this month. What are you grateful for? I challenge to you to come up with one thing everyday that you are thankful for.
I will start. I am thankful for my family, and a wife that always goes above and beyond what is expected. ~M

This Memorial Day Weekend 2014, we pay tribute to all of those who have sacrificed for our country and the freedoms we have. Thank you!
On the journey of life
Comes a time it unravels
Black and white
Dark and light
Mystery blinds our sight
Things we chose to ignore
Focused on what is within
We could see so much more
Yellows and blues
Reds and greens
So many other hues
Gratitude rises at the beauty around
Simply being thankful
In heaven a joyousness resounds

And how could we endure to live and let time simply pass if we were always crying and yearning for those days seemingly lost to the past to come back?
If we did then how would we know that every day in a life fills the whole of life with expectation, memories and gratitude and that these are those days.
In our hearts and minds, yet often is so hard to find. We stumble, we fall, we search , we crawl and then we sometimes say, “dammit all!” For yesterday’s are gone, vanished like the mist. Forever lost to eternity forever to be missed. But then within our dark, today shines a light into our hearts. Around lives and breathes, the wonders and glory of all we need. A soul is compelled to say thank you and for beyond what we do. A precious love from above that towards us moves and forever we should express our sincerest heartfelt gratitude.

Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same. ~Ronald Reagan
