Happy Thanksgiving!


Thank You, God, for little things that often come my way~

The unexpected little joys that brighten up my day~

And, God, no words are great enough to thank You just for living

And making each and every day a day for real Thanksgiving.


~Helen Steiner Rice


For those in need of a little humor:

The Turkey Shot Out of the Oven by Jack Prelutsky

The turkey shot out of the oven and rocketed into the air,

It knocked every plate off the table and partly demolished a chair.

It ricocheted into a corner and burst with a deafening boom,

Then splattered all over the kitchen, completely obscuring the room.

It stuck to the walls and the windows, it totally coated the floor,

There was turkey attached to the ceiling, where there'd never been turkey before.

It blanketed every appliance, It smeared every saucer and bowl,

There wasn't a way I could stop it, that turkey was out of control.

I scraped and I scrubbed with displeasure, and thought with chagrin as I mopped,

That I'd never again stuff a turkey, with popcorn that hadn't been popped.
