Snow falls, Angels listen as hearts awaken through the holidays and thanksgiving,
Opening us to joyous countenance and giving becomes a way of life
Fundamentally spreading new light
Guiding us with inspirations, dreams, and a perception
That includes us wrapping a fluffy blanket around the world
Comforting and lifting others
To follow Christ’s ways intricately weaving memories
Into the divine pattern that follows us around
For years to come, although the depth of happiness lay in spirit,
And pursues each heart candidly
With intent to direct us through the bountiful waves of the universe
It seems at times it also lay in our stomachs and compels us to indulge
Fancy Rolls, Roasted Turkey, Splendid Stuffing, Brown Sugar Yams…Mmmm good
While Aunt Jacquie dazzles our senses with her incredible creations and hospitality,
In the care of many a numerous talents,
The love that she pours into food is only matched by the love she gives to others
We’re merely fans sitting on the sidelines watching her score points in the kitchen
With new recipes, and frankly none of us leave her house satisfied because we always want more,
To the core nobody gives a taste of the holidays better than her,
The holidays sew in miraculous ways that enlighten us to breathe easier, hope more,
And overcome obstacles through the year,
Treasuring holidays with a warm embrace
Of our souls, immeasurably, with love for family
And this year we properly thank the ones that host the events
Bringing us all together in fellowship
As we open our hearts in thanksgiving we remember all the hard work involved
In a delightful day sharing together in bonding with one another
That will forever nourish our world through loving kindness,
And Kindles the fire inside
keeping us warm through the year

Some seasons take us down paths spinning us in gold and amber
Adorning us with diamonds and rubies, angels knock
Some journeys make us choose kindness over anger
Time waits for no one as the leaves change color
Gently falling to the ground painting us everlasting memories
Guiding us to yearn for a better tomorrow with forgiveness, compassion grows
As you care more for life with all it brings, the sun shines on you today
this light is so truly remarkable as it embraces your gifts
and everyone agrees life wouldn’t be the same without you in it
The glistening of the sea is unending and inspiring
So is your love unyielding and pure with blessings
Lending us the Lord’s decree, through strength
How love is truly an art form
Capturing your beauty in this world
With a nice word or a hug or kiss lifts us and
you have become such a wonderful grandma
the sunset strives to match your beauty
and it is now weaved into generations
because of you
I love you
