A Thanksgiving wish

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

Dear Editor:

We want to wish everyone a safe and happy holiday from the practical nursing class No. 49 at the Bowman Building with this poem.

By Judith A. Lindberg

T is for the trust the pilgrims had so many years ago

H is for the harvest the settlers learned to grow

A is for America, the land in which we live

N is for nature and beauty which she gives

K is for kindness, gently words, thoughtful deeds

S is for smiles, the sunshine everyone needs

G is for gratitude ... our blessings big and small

I is for ideas, letting wisdom grow tall

V is for voices, singing, laughing, always caring

I is for Indians, who taught them about sharing

N is for neighbors, across the street, over the sea

G is for giving of myself to make a better me

Happy Thanksgiving everyone

Elizabeth Lippa
