GOOD TIME TO BE A PIG!
BAD DAY TO BE
Yep that’s my take on things!
it’s a great time
oh so much to give
the roads and skies
are the busiest day of the year
oh those poor folks who are hitting the grocery stores today
I do not envy not one bit,
I am oh so thankful to be sitting here
in my home
with coffee in hand
and little 4-leggeds in lap
I do not have to go
I give thanks for
Ancestors, my family, my beloved friends
family of choice
all that has been
to be where it is
that is yet to be.
I am grateful
I am blessed.
I am happy to
NOT be a turkey
did I mention… I am so delighted to not be
fighting over a bird in the cold section of the food stores today
the green beans and the stuffing and the yams and the
“let’s see” whatever else folks will be fighting over
perhaps it will be
the next available cashier?
Folks will gather all over the place; Disney will be croweded; dinners will be held, and quiet moments will be spent in reflection as well!
I know that
D’Vante is being taken by ole’ COB
to have his
“wisdom?” teeth extracted
then she will settle in as his “nurse”
I wonder if that indicates that he will then
develop “wisdom” as a senior of high school?
if he will just lay back for Thanksgiving and
more mashed potatoes than usual
now that he is being nursed
and coddled and loved so tenderly
I have heard that
folks are taking their
best big ole platters out of the cabinets
getting ready to get their
annual “feed on”
TV is being set to
“all day football heaven”
the kitchens are being set up for all the
sensory overloads of smells de jour
to delight the senses
across our lands!
Little and big 4 leggeds are taking up residence in the kitchen
hoping and many are probably offering up
prayers that wonderful things drop to the floor
just for them
to have a “THANKS-falling treat”
along the way!
SOME… will get caught in that “Hallmark picture” with the goods… a big ole Turkey leg and a mouthful!
While many will sit and watch it all from a restaurant
wonder about those they are seeing from a distance
will settle in alone in their home
The holiday season
is now officially upon us
the eve of Thanksgiving.
We see it in the ads on TV
“feel it in our hearts”
we embrace the heart space of
“thank full ness”
it is in remembering those we have and do love
we are most thankful and blessed
in our lives.
So many will enter this Thanksgiving
“missing” those who are no longer here
looking for memories to sustain
HOPE in Healing Ways
I hope that you will find ways to bring those memories into the now
and allow them to be a part of your
Being gentle with you, with those that love you and that you love, while embracing all that is right here and right now.
Others will have a blast tomorrow,
will be sure and know where the
BLACK FRIDAY SALES ARE
and retire to bed early
THEY CAN GET UP AND HIT THOSE STORES
SHOP TIL THEY DROP!
I can remember doing that
just being absolutely amazed by it all!
I still get a kick out of the thought
cannot get past the idea of leaving my bed
to go out to a place and watch or i just don’t know enough of how or what to save on!
ONe thing is certain,
this is the eve
It’s time to fire up the ovens
to get ready to get your
to make those phone calls of long distance, short distance
to jump online and send those emails of
SPEAKING OF THANK YOU’S
to the men, women, service animals
serving our Nation
keeping our lands safe.
thank THANK YOU
for your service
to those who have served
those who are serving
and those who have paid the ultimate sacrifice.
We honor you, we respect you,
ARE THANKFUL FOR YOU.
We are free because of YOU.
Thank you Mr President for leading our Nation in these difficult and challenging times in a thankless job
where ugliness and judgment are witnessed in every moment.
STRETCH ONE TWO THREE
lift your arm, bend elbow to mouth comes hand
Practice time for tomorrow
stand and bend at waist
It could all be gone with three helpings of mashed potATOES
two slices of pecan pie
one slice punkin pie
repeat of meal in 2 hours!
we have that done!
Get your self with gun ready to shoot the bird in the fridg
so you too can say you’ve done it the old fashioned way!
I’m off to shoot the turkey,
it may make an awful noise in the “hood”
at least it may get Sandy’s attention and she can come over and help me get things done here!
What a plan!!!
HAPPY THANKSGIVING DEAR ONES EVERYWHERE.
I will probably know that
COB/Mom and Angie/cuzzie
will send me pictures of the
green jello stuff with taunting
“wish you were here” messages
will probably go so far as to make a great big ole’ spirit plate filled with all my favorites to sit on the table for me and then take a picture as well!
when I do not eat it,
they are ready for seconds there in
you can believe
THEY WILL EAT OFF MY PLATE
rather than get up from the table to get their own!!!
gotta love it!
and hope you are feeling wiser D’Vante now that you had those teeth taken out!
I am thankful
Let’s get this day goin here friends…
