Can we keep it cheery
in this sweet little poem today?
Let us say we're thankful
for that which comes our way.
I am thankful for the muse
who visits me now and then,
thankful for the blogs and all my on-line friends.
I am thankful for my coffee;
I never will deny it.
And thanks for all those doughnuts!
Oh my, I need to diet!
I'm thankful for what others have shared,
Not just their art, but showing they cared.
As I go about creating a new surprise,
It will touch a heart like a beautiful sunrise!
I thank God that He has found the man
He meant to fulfill my life.
And on this December 20th,
He's making me his wife!
Oh Shelley, what wonderful news!
On December 20th you will say your I do’s.
A beautifully stunning bride you will be,
just make sure photos are taken so we can all see!
Thank you. Thank you, all my friends.
I'll make sure the romance never ends.
I've searched the world over to find this man.
He's my soul mate and my best friend.
I am filled with thanks today
that all you special ZNEers have come my way.
The creativity I so admire and try to forever passionately inspire
remains an inevitably beautiful gift to me for which I will always aspire.
Seeing all the wonderful art so proudly displayed,
I can't wait to come here to see what is new today!
Encouragement and critiques are respectfully given.
I think I have died and gone to heaven!
Sharing our art, heart and soul
brings special meaning as we set our goal
To do our best while having fun.
Come on now, for the party has begun!
Early morning talks with coffee in hand,
Sharing news from all over the land.
Greeting each other with slippers on our feet,
greetings and salutations are such a treat.
Like a huge double dip of yummy ice cream
that painting I want to own seems to scream
’Buy me today, and you will see,
SueAnn really made it just for me!”
Beverly is kind; it is plain to see!
She is always uplifting me.
As for the piece she wants so bad,
I don't know, but I think I have been had!!!!!
I’ve found my passion for sharing my art
to those I’ve met here who are a part
of all the wonderful groups in ZNE,
could you please just come, and share with me!
I am thankful to be back
among all my dear friends
I've missed so much.
I'm thankful for having a wonderful man in my life
who loves me for who I am
and encourages me in my art like no other has.
I'm thankful after all these years alone
to have someone I love to hold.
He bought me roses today, just because.
Although he's much younger than I am,
we connect on every level, like no other has.
I am thankful to know love again, very thankful.
Being loved by someone is a wonderful thing,
filling one’s heart and making it sing.
What a wonderful day it has turned out to be
tripping the light fancy!!!!
Oh yes, ‘tis wonderful to finally find
the man of your dreams who's loving and kind.
My heart skips a beat the minute I see
him come into view, oh yes it was to be!
