Twas the Sunday Before Thanksgiving

Twas the Sunday before Thanksgiving, when all through the town
Not a creature was stirring, but oh, they did frown.
Mother Nature surprised them with a blanket of white
As they slept snug in their beds on that cold autumn night.

Sleet, ice and snow fell all over the land
So dry and parched and windblown with sand.
A few stockings were hung by some others with care
But St. Nick said it was too early for him to be there.

We arose from our slumber with a bit of a fright
And wondered what would happen when dark turned to light.
We surely had plans for this day yet to be,
But  icy roads and freezing temps changed our plans, you see.

Over coffee and breakfast, we discussed what to do
And decided that one thing was most definitely true.
This day would not be what we hoped it would be,
But perhaps be a good day to put up the tree.

So out came the tree from the attic above
And soon followed by the many ornaments we love.
Music was played on the sound system nearby
And we enjoyed the afternoon, which surely did fly.

Memory upon memory made its way back to mind
Of past years, kids and pets, and people so kind.
At the end of the day, we proclaimed just how great
It was to have had such a nice snowy break.

God always knows for us what is best,
  When we need a day for some peace and some rest.
So when snow once again finds its way to my door,
I will look forward to that snowy day all the more!  😉

Someone loves eating the snow!

Snowy greetings to one and all!

    1. This is what can happen when I have too much time on my hands. Thought that would be more interesting to read than reading, “It iced and snowed. We froze. Scrapped Sunday plans. Put up the Christmas tree.”

      It was a very nice day and just what we both needed, too. 😉 Thanks for the kind words!


So, what would you like to share today? Thanks!
