Thankful for...


I'm thankful for so many things... it's hard to list them all.

As I was starting my list, I remembered a song from "A FEW" years ago written by Billy Crockett and Milton Brasher-Cunningham. I tried to find a YouTube with Billy singing it... but there were just wanna-bes trying to perform it. So I'll just post the lyrics...

The song is called "Thankful Boys and Girls"...

And I am... one thankful girl...

Happy Thanksgiving, friends...

let us be thankful boys and girls
for eyes and ears and toes and puppies with wet noses
for lessons we have learned and love we have not
earned
we follow the beat of amazing grace

o let us be thankful boys and girls


let us b
e thankful boys and girls
for kisses on the mouth and teenage heartbeats pounding

for lightning in the sky and laughter in the eye

we follow the beat of amazing grace

oh let us be thankful boys and girls


for all that brought us here and all that will see us through

the passageways of life that lead to you, lead us to you


let us be thankful boys and girls
for a little common sense and painted picket fences

when packing up the plans in rented moving vans

we follow the beat of amazing grace

oh let us be thankful boys and girls

let us be thankful boys and girls
for mendelssohn and brahms and shadows growing longer

for years that slowly go and grandkids we can hold
for memories to keep and sorrow running deep

we follow the beat of amazing grace

oh let us be thankful boys and girls


for all that brought us here and all that will see us through
the passageways of life that lead to you, lead us to you


let us be thankful boys and girls

when hope is not enough that death can’t bury love

for wine and bread and hymns remembering again

we follow the beat of amazing grace

oh let us be thankful boys and girls
