ADVENTURES IN OUR AMERICAN DREAM travel blog

 


Happy Thanksgiving! We thank God for our family and friends and this awesome life we are living in our RV. We decided to have Cajun fried turkey with all the usual fixings for our dinner at home. We miss being with our family this time of year. We are very excited to be spending Christmas with family. We hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. I am adding a few cool Thanksgiving poems below and hope you enjoy:

HOW TO OBSERVE THANKSGIVING

Count your blessings instead of your crosses;

Count your gains instead of your losses.

Count your joys instead of your woes;

Count your friends instead of your foes.

Count your smiles instead of your tears;

Count your courage instead of your fears.

Count your full years instead of your lean;

Count your kind deeds instead of your mean.

Count your health instead of your wealth;

Count on God instead of yourself.

THE PILGRIMS GIVE THANKS

Just look upon the land and see the yield

Of pumpkins, corn, and squash in every field.

The shocks of corn are glistening in the sun

With coats of frost on every one.

Come, let us have a feast with praise

To God, who blessed the crops we raise.

Have Massacoit and all his men

Bring deer and visit us again.

Together, we will roast the meat---

Wild turkey, venison we'll eat.

Some pumpkins, corn, and hoe-cake bread

Will grace the board when thanks are said.

A last, we have our feast prepared.

We thank our God for how we've fared,

For crops that He has helped us grow

And for the seed we have to sow.

Our Horn of Plenty overflows

With product from the land we chose.

We give our thanks to God above

For all His care and help and love.
