Gobble, gobble, gobble...








It's almost Thanksgiving!

It's that time of year we reflect on our humble little lives and give thanks for all the things we hold near and dear to our hearts.
We eat too much and watch a lot of sporty type games. We argue with Uncle Harold about politics and religion and then we all settle back for a huge dinner topped with a piece or two of Aunt Lucy's yummy pumpkin pie.
Then as we sit around all bloated and asking ourselves why on earth we ate so much...
we talk about why Stewart isn't married yet and why Gwen hasn't gotten that promotion and why Marge is such a bi*ch.

At the end of the evening we go about gathering up our coats and hats as we head for the door on our long way home. We curse the traffic and the weather and swear that next year we will make some excuse not to join in the festivities and vow to join a gym.

But here's the thing...no matter how much we whine and moan about it all, there is something about this time of year that makes us better people. If only for a few weeks.

We smile a little easier, we give a little more to others and for all intents and purposes we are a little happier with the world in general.
For those few weeks we see the better part of people and we are better people and the world is a better place.

Wouldn't it be great if this year we could manage to make it last a little bit longer than for those few weeks in November and December...wouldn't that be something?




Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!

    Sometimes people forget the real meaning of Thanksgiving, even though the big turkey on our tables is more appealing heheh.

    Happy Thanksgiving Eve & enjoy the rest of your evening :)

  12. You are right, maybe it reminds us that we have other people. Sometimes it's no fun being the only one and a little grumble does us good!

    Happy Thankful Thursday Thanksgiving!
