• Lovely prayer. Happy Thanksgiving to you my friend!

    • Thanks Cheryl. Happy Thanksgiving to you as well. 🙂

  • Gina Baker

    I am a little late here… but I hope you had a great Thanksgiving! We always debate about the dishes. Use paper or nice ones… because no one likes a mound of dishes. 🙂

    • Hi Gina, We had a very nice Thanksgiving and we had some awesome chocolate for dessert too. Paper works for me unless we have a person who just LOVES to wash dishes. I haven’t had one of those over yet… LOL. 🙂

  • You’re funny Susan! The helping with the dishes. Marty and I had our first ever Thanksgiving yesterday with boaters. Even though we boated for 20 years, we never celebrated THIS holiday on the docks! Since we are now into cars and not boats, we’re grateful for the friends who just became boaters who invited us to this new fun tradition.

    Happy Holidays!

    • Hi Patricia, How fun that must have been. So, who did the dishes?… LOL

  • Cute and sweet. Love the graphics. 🙂 I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving Susan! 🙂

    • Hi Sarah, It pleases me greatly that you enjoyed this prayer. It is one of my favorites and I finally make it into something to frame. :-). We had a wonderful Thanksgiving. 🙂

    What a great poem for Thanksgiving. I wish I had read it then. I would have used it as a fun thing for our family gathering. There is always next year. 🙂

    • Hi Julie, I’m sorry you weren’t able reading use it for Thanksgiving, but as you said, there is always next year. 🙂

    Have a blessed Thanksgiving Susan!

  • hahaha – I particular like two things: bless every calorie (Yes, you know there will be a lot of those!) and anyone who helps with the dishes!

    Have a truly splendid day my friend Susan!

    • I do too Patricia. It never hurts to add a bit of lightness to the festivities. I do hope someone helps with the dishes, as I can’t do them when my hand in a bandage. 😀

  • Cheryl Therrien

    It’s lovely that you brought back this post again. Happy Thanksgiving my friend!

    • Aw thank you Cheryl, and a very Happy Holidays to you too. 🙂

  • Ditto… Happy Thanksgiving my friend 🙂

  • Happy Thanksgiving. I feel we need to pray everyday and every time for blessings and its nice if we are thankful for every blessing in our lives. It is nice poem and I too hope that calories that we eat become unable to sew our cloth tight :).
    I love the layout of poem with many pretty autumn colors.

    • Yesterday Malls were full with turkey and when I saw that I remembered all my BHB friends who are celebrating and also moving towards Christmas.

      • Aw, thanks Anna, Turkeys are the main fare for our holiday meals… along with just about everything else… LOL. 🙂

    • Thanks Anna, The calories are a bit hard to avoid this time of year… LOL.

      Happy Dance… It pleases me so that you liked the layout and colors. :-)))

  • Susan – hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. Enjoyed the poem and your always wonderful illustrations.

    • Thanks Jeannette. I wish you the very same my friend. 🙂

  • Jon Jefferson

    We are doing thanksgiving today (friday) and I can already say, I wish I had someone to help with the dishes.

    • I think that is a reframe form all the cooks on Thanksgiving Day, when ever we choose to have it, Jon… LOL.

  • This is a wonderful poem hope you had a great Thanksgiving

  • A nice reflection of what the day is all about. Hope yours was as warm as the poem.

    • Hi Ken, Thanks you and I would wish the same for you as well. 🙂

  • Adrienne

    Hey Sue,

    Had to stop by and check out this post. I love this prayer and my Mom usually leads the blessing at our house. It’s pretty standard with also throwing in our loved ones that weren’t able to be with us on that occasion.

    Thanks for sharing this one with us, it’s definitely cuter and I’ll have to show my Mom.

    Hope you’re healing okay and have a good week.


    • Hi There Adrienne, Thanks so much for visiting. The hand is improving (I’ve gained a new love for love the speech transcription I’ve been using these days) and I hope to be back to normal sometime soon… God willing.

      We love this prayer on many levels. It never fails to bring on conversation of past memories and happy times. 🙂
