If you’ve been “out in it” trying to buy ingredients for the Thanksgiving dinner; Or, you decided to get up real early to go get some “fresh store bought” pies; then let me venture a guess. By now, you wouldn’t even be surprised to see a car load of turkeys headed to Mexico.
I don’t do real well at the grocery store. Now, if you add in a crowd at the grocery store, then you might be conjuring up an interrogation method with more power than truth serum and hot lights.
Right now, the refrigerator is stocked and our plans are all set for Thanksgiving. My parents, wife and I are headed to Keswick Hall for our big Thanksgiving meal. Good times ahead!
This morning, I was asked if I expected to eat well. I admitted that I have some food plans in the future. Yep, I’ve got it all planned out and none of it includes holding back. Then, we have some fixins’ at the house that will be post feast.
In reading several online articles, many reminded to “pause, count your blessings and be thankful”. When writing this blog, it served as a reminder that I need to focus more on the “daily of thanks” and not just the annual thanks.
We had several hundred entries that recited reasons of thankfulness. In these tough times, many recited family, health and blessings of life. Reading those messages was a blessing to me.
Congratulations to the winner of the Joel Bieber Thanksgiving Grocery Giveaway, Eleina Hayes. She posted that, “I am thankful for life, health, and strength!” Eleina says that she has chosen to donate this $150 gift card to a local Richmond shelter for Women & Children. Thanks to all those who participated in this.
I wish you a great Thanksgiving time. Back on Monday. Now, pic o’ day. I’ve got “angry turkey” and “Meditation Dog”. We can choose how we feel.
