Thanksgiving? –Erma Bombeck

May your stuffing be tasty
May your poultry plump,
May your taters and gravy
have nary a lump.
May your yams be scrumptious
as well as your pies go ahead and take prize,
and could your Thanksgiving dinner
stay off your thighs!
An optimist is an individual who starts a brand new diet on Thanksgiving Day. –Irv
Not what we should say about our benefits, but exactly how we rely on them, may be the true measure
in our thanksgiving. –WT Purkiser

and humiliate that old gentleman. One known as in a loud voice: ‘Hey player,
does everybody do this where you reside?A
That old man checked out the callow youth and comfortably stated: ‘No, boy,
the pigs don’t.’"

"PROFANITY may be the
unintelligent effort of the FEEBLE MIND attempting to express itself intentionally.
THANKSGIVING may be the spiritual activity of the SANCTIFIED HEART expressing itself

“Thanksgiving speaks in obvious, crisp tones of
forgotten terms like integrity – bravery – respect – belief-vigilance – dignity –
recognition – freedom – discipline -sacrifice-godliness. Its historic halls echo with
the voices of Washington, Franklin, Jefferson, Adams, Henry, Lincoln subsequently, Lee and
Jackson, who challenge us to trim from the fat of indolence, compromise,
passivity, and also the stigma of trouble.” (Charles R. Swindoll)
