Giving Thanks

Happy Thanksgiving to all of my friends and followers today.  I’m posting today because I committed myself to National Blog Post Month.  I’m sure you would all be terribly disappointed if I didn’t post today, right? (Damn … I forgot what I formerly declared as the universal sarcasm font.) I hope that no one has killed their in-laws yet or fallen into a serious turkey coma. Should you need a temporary respite from the relatives, please enjoy this simple acrostic poem:

Turkey on the table, and love and laughter fill the halls.

Happy to be with family, and grateful for the company of good friends.

Aunts and uncles, brothers and sisters, grandparents, and spouses, both blood and chosen family.

No one feels alone; everyone knows this place may be called home.

Kids laugh and play and peek at the pumpkin and pecan pies.

Sharing special times; making memories that will comfort us in moments of despair, for we know family will always be there.  I will always be here.  


  1. It is so wonderful to have a place to go to. Home where there is laughter.

  2. Sounds like you had a great Thanksgiving and lots to be thankful for. Yay!

  3. I hope this weekend was full of wonderful memories for you and your family, Angela! I'm exhausted.
