Thanksgiving

ahem...ahem...and now for my 4th Annual Thanksgiving Day Poem:

Thank you God for fifty.
Fifty little fingers going tappity tap
grasping and pointing, learning to snap.
Fifty little toes that never stop wiggling,
sometimes they're piggies and we can't stop giggling.

Thank you God for ten.
Ten little hands to hold in mine.
Ten little arms for hugs so divine.
Ten little feet that rarely slow down.
Ten little eyes, 4 blue and 6 brown.

Thank you God for five.
Five little souls to cherish and reach.
Five little minds to nourish and teach.
Five little hearts to point towards Your light.
Five little smiles that bring such delight.

Thank you God for one.
One wonderful husband, I couldn't be without.
Who works hard for his family, and knows what love is about.
One precious family, knit together in Your love.
Such a gift and a blessing comes from nowhere else but above.

Happy Thanksgiving!

You've always been good at writing! I don't think I have attempted much of that since Mr. Roger's creative writing class! LOL

It's beautiful. :)
