Hello, my Friend! Hello today!
I hope you are in a good way!
No matter rain, no matter shine,
I always hope your day is fine!
This mornin’ me Mum called to me.
I heard her say “Finney! Finney!”
When I hear me Mum call my name,
Not to answer would be my shame.
Me Mum taught me I should be kind.
I know that, me Mum, I should mind!
She prays and teaches me so well,
And there is something I will tell…
Me Mum and Dad take care of me,
So I can live each day safely.
I’m thankful for all that they do.
I know there’s need to say “Thank You!”
And at this special time of year,
Thanksgivin’ Day is very near.
It’s a fun day to think of all
We’re grateful for, both big and small…
To think of blessings God has giv’n,
With His Love and Care from Heav’n!
Me Family and me Friends I love,
Are gifts from God, in Heav’n above.
I do say “Thank You, God, for all
These loved ones who are tall and small!”
I’m thinkin’ now of very much
That shows to us God’s Lovin’ Touch…
The breeze and sky and sun and moon…
The birds in flight…a pretty tune…
The stars that shine all through the night,
And lovely scenes that come to sight…
The small sand grains that glisten bright
When Sun’s fine rays beam them with light…
The grand green grass so thick and fun,
To play and run on ‘fore day’s done…
The autumn leaves whose colors blaze,
As trees go through their changing days…
When all their leaves that once were greens
Change into bright, grand rainbow scenes…
The orange, yellow, and red leaves
Fall to the ground with graceful ease.
The earth takes on leaves’ golden glow,
While bare trees let us know that snow
Might even not be far away,
To fall softly on a cold day.
We’re grateful, too, for Winter fun,
When it is cold, but still there’s Sun…
When Winter’s air’s so cold and clean,
And snow might treat us to a scene,
Where each branch has crystal-ly shine
That comes when ice and snow combine…
When cozy warmth of fire’s glow
Helps us not be too cold from snow..
When Mum’s dee-lish and steamy meals,
(That help us know how good it feels
To warm right up after a chill),
We so enjoy and we know will
Take care of hungries that we had,
And, if something made us feel bad!
We’d be content then…feel so good…
These kinds of things quite nicely would
Help see us through to early Spring
When season’s change warms everything!
And then the fresh Spring rains do come,
And help bring flowers and bee’s hum!
All colors, shapes, and different size,
Flowers bring comfort to our eyes!
The hawthorne blooms, and daffodils,
Bring beauty to the vales and hills.
The crocus flowers and blackthorn,
Bring blessings on a Springtime morn!
But best of all, with Springtime days,
Come grand breezes blowin’ all ways!
When Springtime passes…Summer’s here,
Four fine, grand seasons in the year!
The Summer brings us swimmin’ time…
With picnickin’ and trees to climb…
Days at the beach and soft sea breeze…
Grand games to play with fun and ease,
While makin’ time, in the right way,
So work is done…most ev’ry day!
And Summer’s flowers! Everywhere!
So many, many here and there!
And all the creatures of the Earth,
They grow and live after their birth!
And I could speak of so much more
That I could say I’m thankful for…
But I’m so hungry…need to eat…
And me Mum’s cookin’s hard to beat!
I am so thankful I can say,
I see God’s blessings in my day!
And after I enjoy my meal,
I know so well how good I’ll feel!
I’ll play and laugh and maybe dance,
And watch the stars? There is a chance!
I hope that you are grateful, too,
For all that God has given you!
I know that we each are so blessed!
What joy if this, we all confessed!
We’d all feel good in a fine way…
‘Twould make a grand Thanksgivin’ Day!
And speakin’ of, I’d like to say,
I am so glad you came today!
A fine Friend to Nannie and Me,
I hope you know how grand you be!
So thankful we are to know you,
God bless you grand, and keep you, too!
And one more thing… I’d like to say
Have a Blessed Thanksgivin’ Day!
