Happy Thanksgiving

For the hay and the corn and the wheat that is reaped,
For the labor well done, and the barns that are heaped,
For the sun and the dew and the sweet honeycomb,
For the rose and the song and the harvest brought home --
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

For the trade and the skill and the wealth in our land,
For the cunning and strength of the workingman's hand,
For the good that our artists and poets have taught,
For the friendship that hope and affection have brought--
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

For the homes that with purest affection are blessed,
For the season of plenty and well-deserved rest,
For our country extending from sea unto sea;
The land that is known as the "Land of the Free" --
Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving!

Such A Beautiful Poem.

♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥

This time of year we start thinking about how thankful we are, with Thanksgiving and the Christmas Holiday coming up. But I try to think of everyday as "Thanksgiving". I am always so grateful for what I have in my life. Especially my Husband, Children ( Now grown ) Grandchildren(9 of them) and the rest of our family and friends. and to those that are now gone we miss them so much too.
Remember to give thanks not just this time of year but always, life is so short you never know what to expect.

I used some orange and dark brown card stock that I had in my stash and added some pretty fall leaves I then added my Thanksgiving stamp and colored it in with more pretty fall colors on a dark orange paper and used my MS punch on the corners.
I then added some orange rhinestone stickers along both side of the stamped design.
I hope you enjoy this card as much as I enjoyed creating it.
thank you for visiting and do visit again soon.
~ God Bless ~
