Writing Prompt

I’m Thankful For

I’m participating for the very first time in Mama Kat’s Pretty Much Famous Writer’s Workshop. This week’s theme prompt is Thanksgiving. One suggestion is to write a poem. I’m not a poet, but I do have reason to be thankful. I present to you, a not so original title.


I’m Thankful For
© 2011 Cathy Kennedy


I’m thankful for…

For my home

…with its imperfections

…cozy and quaint quarters

…not a castle or a mansion

…it’s still home, sweet home to me

For my chores

…Endless mounds of laundry

…Dirty piles of dishes

…In-between snacks and

…Three meals a day

For my children

…watching their first steps

…teaching them lessons

…seeing them grow

..spreading their wings on they go

For my husband who

… walks beside me

…encourages my endeavors

…cherishes me like a treasure

…will be my best friend forever


…my husband’s job – a true God send

…our locale – which offers us much

…this nation – the privilege we share

…the military – our freedom they protect

For Jesus

…His birth

…His life

…His sacrifice

…all for my life


What are you thankful for?



Create and Craft

I born and raised in the Appalachian mountains of southern WV. I was a child bride when I married my high school sweetheart in 1979. We moved to Knoxville, TN to begin our life. Determined to prove nay-Sayers from our community wrong, I completed my education and went on to earn an A.S. in computer programming. From 1983-1987, I worked as a computer system’s manager. That’s a glorified title for someone who trouble shoots and maintains system back-ups. After the birth of our first child in 1988, I took early retirement. What have I been doing for the last 25+ years? I am proud to say, I am a SAHM and for most of those years I home-schooled our three children from K-12. Now, the nest is empty.
