Spinning up a Happy Thanksgiving!



FIRST THANKSGIVING
~~By Margaret Hillert~~


If I had been a Pilgrim child
Among the fields and forests wild
Where deer and turkey used to roam,
A cabin would have been my home
With fireplace and earthen floor
And bearskins hanging at the door.

I would have gathered berries bright
For candles fragrantly alight,
And dug for clams and picked the corn
And laid the table smooth and worn.

Or hunted nuts hard-shelled and good
And helped in any way I could,
With time to laugh and play and run
When Indian children came for fun.

And on the first Thanksgiving Day
I would have met with friends to pray
And thank the Lord for all his care
In keeping us together there.



Wishing you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving!



This week Jen from Sprite's Keeper is dedicating the entire week for the Spin Cycle on Giving Thanks... I'm attempting to participate every day this week...I'm thankful for all the delicious food we are able to imbibe on this special day.  And especially for stretchy yoga pants.  Why don't you head on over and check out the other Thankful Spinners and join in the fun!

I am so thankful for the new blog friends I have made this past year. I had just started blogging this time last year!
