Thanksgiving Poem

Wednesday, November 24, 2010

Twas the day before thanksgiving
and all through the house,
the Mama was working
for family and spouse.

The cleaning was done
and the meal had been planned
The Turkey, desert and
yes, even the Ham.

The table was laid
with some beautiful things,
in anticipation of a day
that being with family will bring.

As I look back on this year
and all that has transpired,
I have to be Thankful
for getting inspired.

I changed what I did
and I changed what I ate,
I started moving more
and putting less on my plate.

I added some friends
I never could dream
would have added so much
and what that would mean.

There is always an ear
when I need to speak
and a pat on the back
after losing weight in a week.

There have been things
that were hard to take
but I turned to my strength
and turned my back to the cake.

My husband and girls
are what spur me on
and how good that I feel
with all that weight gone.

For the next few days
whether with family or friends,
take a minute to imagine
how this journey ends

How well you have done,
how great do you feel,
how far you have come
that it's more than a meal.

It takes just a minute
to be grateful indeed
You are in it to win it
and you mean something to me.

Have a wonderful Thanksgiving my friends. You are on my list of things I am grateful for and whether you have family or money or health or not, there is something that is worth being grateful for, something that makes your life better. Most of all, we have this one life. Make the best of it!

Love, Jan
