NOVEMBER is "Thanksgiving" Month

Posted by patricianeelydorsey on November 21, 2009 at 6:53 PM

The Thanksgiving Holiday is a perfect time for each of us to reflect on all of the things we have to be thankful for and to count our many blessings.

This Thanksgiving we should all express our "Thanksgiving" sentiments to friends and loved ones..and most importantly to THE ONE from whom all blessings flow.

 

 

 

REFLECTIONS OF A MISSISSIPPI MAGNOLIA

When I look back on my life,

I think how wonderful it has been;

To have had the most wonderful parents of all,

And a host of wonderful friends.

My high school days were blissful,

And my college days so fun;

Fond memories are one thing for sure,

That I have by the ton.

I'm so glad that I grew up,

On Mississippi sod,

My t-shirt reads: "American by birth,

And southern by the grace of God."

My life has been so wonderful,

I wouldn't change one condition;

As one friend of mine always says,

I should have paid admission.
