SWELLED HEARTS GAVE THANKS...

(excerpt from THE PUMPKIN, John Greenleaf Whittier)

And the prayer...my mouth too full to express,

Swells my heart...for thy shadow to never be less,

...that the days of thy lot may be lengthened below,

And the fame of thy worth like a pumpkin-vine grow,

May thy life be as sweet...its last sunset sky

Golden-tinted and fair...as thy own Pumpkin pie!

WELCOME TO OUR DAY OF THANKS...

I loved "seeing" your day unfold in living color. Wish I had been there to lend my hands and heart to the task.

Have a blessed week of preparation--wherever that takes you in both body and spirit.
