Being There…

Continuing with my thoughts on Thanksgiving; the meaning and the mayhem or how did we cluck it up?

A few more pithy thoughts; Seems we’re never satisfied, there is never enough. We constantly have to make each celebration better than the last. Its like we are training for the “Gold Medal” in the Thanksgiving Olympics! Last year a twenty pound turkey and five sides – Not good enough! This Year we will make it a twenty five pound turkey and seven sides – Better yes?

No, you idiots!  Here we go it doesn’t matter what is on the table! What matters is who’s around the table. “Being there”  – Present  that’s the gift – Your presence.

Sharing our selves this day, is nourishment for the soul.

In retrospect it would have been easier if the pilgrims and indians just shared peanut butter and jelly sandwiches!
