thankful


{a vessel for carson}

i am thankful
for friends
new and old.

friends
that i have met.
and
friends
that i have
yet to meet
{that means you}.

thankful
that
grub and i
are fortunate
to have
the time
to
celebrate
together
with friends.


{a collection of bottles
from monday's party
}

thankful
that i am
still sane
and healthy
even after
a
rough year.

thankful
that i have
so many blessings
and corners



to call my own.

thankful
for
my family
near



and
far away.

thankful
for the
gift of life



that i know
i take
for granted
each day.

happy
thanks-
giving
to all of you.

Beautiful!
Happy Thanksgiving:) I love the picture of your sleeping nephew. Take care and I hope that your move goes smoothly.

*gasp* the photos...the photos.
What a beautiful vessel! Thanks!
The off-centredness of it is very pleasing.
And that photo of your nephew (that is your nephew right?..hard to keep track of blogospheric familial relations sometimes) is I think one of the best baby photos I've ever seen. Like a Late Renaissance painting (except for the hairy belly and tatt..heh).
Looks like it was a great party.
