HAPPY THANKSGIVING
from
Saints Peter & Paul Catholic School

Give thanks to the Lord...
for He is good; his love endures forever.
                             - Psalm 118:1

If God gave us only one day of life...
   ...it would have been generous.
 
If God gave us only one springtime or one fall...
  ...it would have been generous.
 
If God gave us only one day of laughter and joy...
  ...it would have been generous.
 
If God gave us only one meal served in a safe home...
  ...it would have been generous.
 
If God gave us only one friend with which to share life's journey...
  ...it would have been generous. 
 
If God gave us only year of a happy married life...
  ...it would have been generous.
 
If God only gave us one of the talents we have...
  ...it would have been generous.
 
If God only gave us one eye to see or one ear to hear...
  ...it would have been generous. 
 
If God gave us only one moment's pride in the success of those we love...
  ...it would have been generous.  
 
But God gave us life and time, joy and sorrow, sunshine and tears, gifts to share, and days to remember.
 
God has given us friends and lovers, children and parents, all of which are a glimpse of him.
 
It is for these and his many other gifts that we take time at the Thanksgiving table to express our gratitude for his generous nature. 
 
We give thanks for your continued belief in the value of Catholic education and the support of our parish school.

SS PP Trivia
 
When our school was founded in 1853...
 
  ...children didn't rush outdoors during the first snow storm to build a replica of Frosty the Snowman as that popular Christmas character was first introduced in a song recorded by Gene Autry in 1950.
