Thanksgiving 2009 Remembered

Thanksgiving 2009 Remembered

I know I gained a pound or two,
Okay, it might be three,
We had a feast fit for a king,
With friends and family.

We really had a lovely time,
It warmed this mother’s heart,
To have three sons around her,
Sometimes, we’re far apart.

The table looked resplendent,
Set with Grandma’s silverware,
And china that had long been mine,
And is now in Laura’s care.

There were festive decorations,
Pumpkins, gourds and such,
Done by my son’s bride-to-be,
With her special, loving touch.

All the food was sinful,
Topped off by FIVE desserts,
Finally, someone spoke for all,
“Not another bite, it hurts!”

    Tried unsuccessfully to email you without success (email address unavailable) in response to your invitation so to do. Please be reassured, the perpetrator of the recent misdeed (you know what I mean) was male, obviously one of those with a warped mind.
    God bless.
