At Thanksgiving time I am giving thanks for the announcement that A Dime is A Sign has won an Honorable Mention for Poetry in the 2019 Royal Dragonfly Book Awards! This is the 9th Award for this volume of poetry which is a companion book to A Penny for Your Thoughts. This contest, sponsored by Story Monsters Inc, is a popular one and I am thrilled to be a recipient again this year.
This is my 77th award overall…
Happy Thanksgiving to All…!
Give your loved ones some poetry of love… Love was born at Christmas!
Santa’s the spirit of Christmas,
The longing to give in your heart,
The wanting to make others happy,
As God gave us love at the start.
For God’s love was born at Christmas,
All wrapped in a small holy Boy.
So we want to give on His birthday,
To share all our love and our joy.
You’re never too old to love Santa,
Just open your heart and believe…
That Santa brings gifts for Christ’s birthday,
And it’s better to give than receive.
…Sherrill S. Cannon
