Happy Thanksgiving to One and All!

~~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!



Edited to add:

Since this is a holiday weekend for many, I’ll be taking advantage of the extra time to spend with my family – I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled program on Monday.  Have a great weekend!

About Stacy (the Random Cool Chick)

After 20+ years in the Corporate World and years of infertility, Princess Nagger made her miraculous appearance and I chose to become a SAHM and WAHM - I love every minute of it. We added Little Dude through adoption, adding a whole new dimension to our family. We have an eclectic mix of pets: dogs, cats, birds and fish. I love to cook and try new techniques to turn ordinary into extraordinary. Crafty by nature, I take on a lot of unique projects and enjoy seeing the end result. My favorite, of course, is making my own wine out of fruits and grapes. Experiments with water currently underway. I blog about the joys of parenting, family, friends, life, love and anything else that strikes my fancy. I do enjoy doing reviews and giveaways for products I use, believe in and can stand behind.

  1. Beautiful.
    I actually had my FIRST Thanksgiving last year. As a non-American I felt a bit like a scientist observing a foreign species in their natural habbitat – and I loved it. It was one of the best days I’ve ever had and I went to sleep early with a full belly.
    I hope you have a lovely Thanksgiving
