A Thanksgiving of Memories
Driving down the road, towards the perfect place,
The brilliant colors of the trees, make it easy to embrace.
The anticipation of what's comin, just round the bend,
Makes my heart beat faster, as we near our journey's end.
The excitement of the weekend and what memories it will create,
takes me back to my childhood, and the fun the kids will await.
Log by log the home was built, with love in every joint,
nothing about this dwelling, could possibly disappoint.
The hot tub nestled outside the home, just around the nook,
was a place of relaxation, especially with a good book.
The cozy little billiard room kept the family together.
The heat of the wood burning stove,
seemed to keep us warm from the cool weather.
All the grandkids ran around and took in the mountain air,
Swinging on the swing-set and resting on a porch chair .
The evenings were crisp, on the brisk October nights,
so we started a fire in the pit, and gazed up at the dazzling star lights.
Nothing like the amazement of staring at the glow ,
of the dancing fire and logs disappearing , what a wondrous show.
Early in the morning the sun streamed through the window blinds,
the smell of coffee brewing woke me ,.......... time for a meeting of the minds.
Today we will hike up the path, along the foliage filled trail,
checking out the wild mushrooms and maybe even a snail.
The sound of water trickling, makes us rush to the creeks edge.
being careful as we walk, for there is a rocky ledge.
The magnificent waterfall, spilling over its stoney banks,
makes us humble......... and now we stop..........
to the Earth, we must give thanks.
A weekend full of Thankfulness......and memories we have made,
From Alberta to Texas, our loving family has been portrayed.
