Leave Your Leaves, Thanks

Our thankful project:
Sticky sticks

Paper leaves
 Hole punchers
Leaves on trees 
And words. 
To remember
why we have it so good.
 NOW the party can start....
 Thankful!
For laughs.
For cheeks. 
 For kisses.
For great books, art, nature.
For peace bringers.
For friends and kindreds.  

  
Happy Thankful Day, friends. 

And whether, my artsy allies,
my parent pals,
my bloggy belles,
whether
you are waltzing in your glory days
or mired in your daily dirt, 
in spiky heels or holey socks, 
with a wealth of words or a stuttering muse,
regardless of where you stand on your map, 
I wish you joy and great thrills 
of contentment.
