Good Day World!
It’s Thanksgiving in America.
My first thought: families flocking to dinner tables to devour turkeys from coast to coast. Baked and mashed potatoes. Stuffing and gravy. Carrots and string beans. Salads and Deviled eggs. Cranberry sauce and apple juice. Apple and Pumpkin pies with a side of vanilla ice cream.
My second thought: How many people are taking the time to be thankful for what they have in life today? More important, how many people are thankful for what they have everyday – no matter how humble or simple?
My third thought: Kids today don’t buy the same thanksgiving Pilgrim/Indian story that I grew up with in the 50’s. For example; kids today know the white man took advantage of Native Americans – essentially ruining their way of life forever.
Wish #1- That the world would someday come together in peace and understanding, so everyone could be thankful for their life.
Wish #2 – Never forget how blessed I’ve been in my life. The Good, Bad, and the Ugly things that happened were necessary to fully appreciate that.
Wish #3 – the will power not to gorge myself today with all the good food my beautiful bride of 40 years has prepared!
Time for me to walk on down the road…
