Thoughtfully Catherine told Vincent,
"When I was a little girl, we would always watch
the parade through Dad's office windows."

A smile came over her face as she fondly
"There was this magnificent panoramic view,
where we could look down on all the floats,
and the people...looked so small."

Then with a nod she added,
"But I have to say, never before,
have I had a better view!
This rooftop seating is wonderful!"

Looking sweetly at her Vincent,
Catherine added,
"And I love being able to watch the parade with
so much."

Vincent looked back at Catherine,
taking in her beauty,
her kindness and her joy,
and with a slight nod,
he graciously expressed how much it pleased him
she was happy.

Leaning her head on his shoulder,
he gently leaned his on hers,
and whispered,
"Happy Thanksgiving Catherine."
