HOLIDAY BLESSINGS ON PARADE
by Marie Elena
Oh the feasts that we would eat –
Grandma’s stuffing can’t be beat!
Turkey carved and on display,
Guesses on “what does it weigh?”
Yams and hams and pumpkin pies,
And (to figures’ great demise}
Aunt Peg’s “Goop,” and Mom’s cheesecake.
Hopeful leftovers to take!
TV playing football games,
Watched by mostly men named James.
Conversations, hugs, and laughs.

P.S. Once-upon-a-time, there were so many men/boys named James in our family, it became a running joke. Grandpa, 2 uncles, Dad, and two cousins (one nicknamed Punk)! 😀
Love This – Wonderful Blessings indeed!
Thank you David. So much for which to be thankful.
So wonderful – your words warm my heart…
Thank you, Nurit. You know all about close families!
Oh what treasures! Nothing can surpass God’s goodness to us.
He is so good to us. ❤
