I chose the words.. your teacher... from the poem.
Journaling reads..."Your favorite part of your day is always.... your teacher!"
Come play along with us until December 14th!


We were blessed to have both of our families together with us for Thanksgiving!  Not everyone was feeling well, but the dinner was fabulous and we got to enjoy each other's company... we played Scattegories and the boys played Xbox.  It was a great time!  The kids loved playing together!

Gratitude- Scrap That Poetry Challenge

Prayer for the Great Family

Gratitude to Mother Earth, sailing through night and day—

and to her soil: rich, rare and sweet

in our minds so be it.

Gratitude to Plants, the sun-facing, light-changing leaf

and fine root-hairs; standing still through wind

and rain; their dance is in the flowering spiral grain

in our minds so be it.

Gratitude to Air, bearing the soaring Swift and silent

Owl at dawn. Breath of our song

clear spirit breeze

in our minds so be it.

Gratitude to Wild Beings, our brothers, teaching secrets,

freedoms, and ways; who share with us their milk;

self-complete, brave and aware

in our minds so be it.

Gratitude to Water: clouds, lakes, rivers, glaciers;

holding or releasing; streaming through all

our bodies salty seas

in our minds so be it.

Gratitude to the Sun: blinding pulsing light through

trunks of trees, through mists, warming caves where

bears and snakes sleep— he who wakes us—

in our minds so be it.

Gratitude to the Great Sky

who holds billions of stars— and goes yet beyond that—

beyond all powers, and thoughts

and yet is within us—

Grandfather Space.

The Mind is his Wife.

so be it.

after a Mohawk prayer

by: Gary Snyder, Turtle Island

New Directions, New York, 1974, pp. 24-25

This is our poem this time over at Scrap That Poetry...
I hope you are able to come over and share something you are grateful for...
card, layout, gift, etc.
You have until November 30th to post a link to your creation... here!

I am so grateful for everything in my life!
Thank you for reading my blog!

Scrapping the Music

OOOHHH my goodness... when I read the lyrics for this weeks' song... No Rain... it made me think of my trip to the pumpkin patch with Becky and our kids... it rained that day so the official "field trip" was post poned to the following day... however, we couldn't switch our personal days... so we went in the rain... we all had a blast!

Here is a picture of one of Becky's boys... loving the puddles!
All the kids were soaked, but honestly had so much fun!
Today I am grateful for...
