~* Happy Thanksgiving *~



For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.

--Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803-1882)


Wishing everyone a Happy & Safe Thanksgiving!

Many Blessings,



Stitched by Dora ~ A sweet lady who shared this picture of

her finish to my “Give Thanks” pattern.  She did a beautiful job!! :)

Honoring All Who Served




The Pride of Our Country

by Roger Robicheau


Today as before, our brave do fight
For a land they love, a flag so right

The pride of our country, yes they are
The strength of our nation, best by far

Just as our brave from each war gone by
They march for us proudly, flag held high

From all over this land they come to serve
They’re taught by the best, this they deserve

When troops give their all, the world does see
Whether serving on land, in the air, or at sea

The pride from this country, march through war
With home drawn strength, held deep in their core

Our best are so awesome, their loved ones well know
May God guide their journey where they - for us - go

What these brave must have is support from their own
The love from their people, firm thankfulness shown

Our greatest achievement is that we’re still free
Please take time and ponder who caused this to be.

God Bless,
