2.) Share a photo of what Thanksgiving looks like in your neck of the woods.
3.) Write a poem about the things you are thankful for.
4.) Describe a memorable Thanksgiving.
5.) Forget Thanksgiving, write about that time you fell down

Mama's Losin' It

Me: What is Thanksgiving about?

Dracen(age 7)Indians

MeIndians? Well, what else? 

Dracen: Worshipping God

MeWhat about the pilgrims?  What did they do?

DracenOh yeah. They worshipped God too.

MeSo what are you thankful for?

Dracen: (sigh)..Everybody has been asking me that.

Me: Oh really? Well, what did you tell them? What are you thankful for?

Dracen: as he dips his Oreo into his cup of milk and strains to see what's on Cartoon Network over my shoulder... I dunno.

And that's when I decided to try my hand at a poem.

I'm thankful for facebook
and blogging and tweets
I'm thankful for blackberry,
almost more than sweets!

I'm thankful for Google,
email and Yahoo
I'm thankful for IM
and wikipedia too!

I'm thankful for this laptop,
We've gotten pretty tight
I'm thankful for the convenience
it gives me to write!

I'm thankful for this workshop
that Mama Kat hosts
I'm thankful for the inspiration
it gives me to post!

I'm thankful for all of you
who read what I say
And I'm thankful even more
when you pause to say "Hey"!
