Happy Black Friday! I hope you had a good Thanksgiving Day. Although we are in the midst of uncertain times, there is still much to be thankful for as we enter this holiday season.
It is a little different Thanksgiving at my house. It was quiet yesterday and family is coming today. So while you are munching on leftovers, I will be on my first round of turkey today. Speaking of leftovers- here is something that has been circulating the internet for a number of years that shows there is a limit to how long one can be thankful for turkey. I thought it would be good to send it around again.
On the First Day….. We give thanks for the fresh turkey feast and its hot trimmings.
On the Second Day….. We bless the cold turkey sandwiches, sloshy cranberry sauce, and hard rolls.
On the Third Day….. We praise the turkey pie and vintage mixed veggies.
On the Fourth Day….. We thank the pilgrims for not serving bison that first time, or we’d be celebrating Thanksgiving until April.
On the Fifth Day….. We gobble up cubed bird casserole and pray for a glimpse of a bare turkey carcass.
On the Sixth Day….. We show gratitude (sort of) to the creative cook who add cashews and noodles to the turkey and calls it Oriental.
On the Seventh Day….. We forgive our forefathers and pass the turkey-nugget pizza.
On the Eighth Day….. The word ”vegetarian” keeps popping into our heads.
On the Ninth Day….. We check our hair to make sure we’re not beginning to sprout feathers.
On the Tenth Day….. We hope that the wing meat kabobs catch fire under the broiler.
On the Eleventh Day….. We smile over the creamed gizzard because the thigh bones are in sight.
On the Twelfth Day….. We apologize for running out of turkey leftovers. And everybody says, “Amen!”
Thought for the Week
“For each new morning with its light,
For rest and shelter of the night,
For health and food,
For love and friends,
For everything Thy goodness sends.
Father in heaven,
We thank thee.“
~Ralph Waldo Emerson
