Thanksgiving Delights

Thanksgiving Delights

On Thanksgiving Day we’re thankful for
Our blessings all year through,
For family we dearly love,
For good friends, old and new.

For sun to light and warm our days,
For stars that glow at night,
For trees of green and skies of blue,
And puffy clouds of white.

We’re grateful for our eyes that see
The beauty all around,
For arms to hug, and legs to walk,
And ears to hear each sound.

The list of all we’re grateful for
Would fill a great big book;
Our thankful hearts find new delights
Everywhere we look!

  8. I really like the wine colors of this photo. There is a certain shimmer to it I really enjoy.

  9. Thank you Preston! I don't even remember how I achieved the shimmer effect. I really should start writing down the steps I take but then it wouldn't be 'play' any more! :))
