On Being Thankful (Poems and Pictures)

Hey, guys! I hope you’re all having a fantastic Thanksgiving. Honestly, I feel like I was just doing this – as each year passes, the time flies faster. If you’re not in too much of a food coma, I hope that you’ll take a few minutes to read this post. The poems are not mine, and I’m not quite sure who wrote them exactly, but I thought they would be appropriate for today.

I’m accompanying the poems with pictures I took of things other than dolls. Quick warning, though – they’re completely unedited (except where I blurred out the info on Jax and Callie’s collars). 🙂 So if you dare to look, go ahead . . .

All give thanks to the Lord above

For the fact that we are able

To have the food and shelter 

We all need to survive

And have the love of family

That makes it good to be alive

Lord, as we bow our heads to pray

We celebrate Thanksgiving Day

Help us have the right attitude

As we turn to You (sic) in gratitude
