Thoughts While Cleaning Up After Thanksgiving…..

Thank you, Dear Lord,

For balloons on the ceiling

and giggles, and laughing

and children and squealing

And a floor strewn with toys,

and Legos and noise

We ask you to bless

our home and its mess

and remind us to treasure

this joy without measure

For soon they’ll be grown

with kids of their own

And their parents will be

Just as grateful as we.

Thank you, Kevin, for these warm post-Thanksgiving thoughts. May blessings continue through the Holidays.

  2. Thoughts While Eating a Thanksgiving Meal

    We sat down at dinner ready to say a prayer,
    but to my surprise a guy wearing a hat was there.
    Hats at the table were a no-no, I was taught to believe,
    but maybe I was just being very naive.
    I guess the world is changing in my view,
    so I sat in silence as I began to chew.
    After all, I am not in charge of the table and
    not wearing hat at a meal may now be just a fable.
    Wearing a hat was a choice by tha guy
    and as for me, I will choose the pumpkin pie.

    • Don,

      Did you create these poetic “Thoughts While Eating a Thanksgiving Meal”? Is there another poet that we didn’t know it at Crystal Lake? I always try to give credit where credit is due.
