I've been a baaaad blogger. Yes, I've had a lot of other things on my mind, but I won't give any excuses. It's not like I didn't have the time....I just didn't have the inclination.... and wasn't up to doing it. But I did want to wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving and hope you have a beautiful day filled with warmth, love, friends and family....and lots of good food. Bless you all.... ~Joy xo
Pass The Gravy….
Oh dear God if you’re listening take my words to be true;
Thanksgiving Day’s here, so I’m coming to you.
An abundance of food is sure to be found.
I’m praying you’ll guide me….and help slow me down.
Please give me strength…I implore and beseech
That you’ll keep ‘second helpings’ well out of my reach.
That you’ll keep me in check as my plate grows;
And you’ll stop me from hogging the mashed potatoes.
That veggie-cheese casserole can’t come my way,
And somehow you must keep the gravy at bay.
I’m asking a lot for this day so divine,
And I’m sure you’ve got other requests…not just mine.
Remind me that one scoop of stuffing suffices;
And turkey is fine….just not five or six slices.
With all that is laid out on splendid display,
I hope buttered rolls won’t be part of my day.
Why can’t I load up on things better for me?
Because on this day….there are none to be seen.
Cranberries or jello might work for me best;
But who in their right mind could give up the rest?
Let me eat a bit slower and take it all in;
Small bites, so the gravy won’t drip from my chin.
Let me breathe in the joy of every aroma;
And don’t lay me victim to some turkey coma.
Yes, I need you to know that my wishes are dire;
For one of these times I’m sure to expire.
I figured a prayer just a few days before,
Might keep me from ending up flat on the floor.
So God keep me honest, and please stay alert.
I have to leave room for all the dessert.
