Chatting about turkey…

“Hey, Mom, remember the raffle I entered for a Thanksgiving Day turkey?”
“I remember that I bought a ticket for a dollar.”
“Right, and lucky me, I won the turkey! ”
“Ain’t it great?”
“Yes, but sweetie, it’s alive.”

We had neighbors that had this happen. Their kid was so excited! His mother tried to explain to him that it was meant to be for Thanksgiving day dinner and for that to happen it would have to have its head chopped off. It was quite a shock for the kid who was thinking how great it was to have a pet turkey. He didn’t get to keep it as a pet. The turkey went to a local farm. I don’t know what happened after that. It’s hard to think of a turkey that you have personally met as someone’s dinner. I hope the farm he went to was owned by vegetarians.

Gift, blessings, purpose…

Sparks 7

liona

“Every life has a purpose.
We need to let go of the past. Live in the present.
Do not waste today worrying about what will happen tomorrow.
Embrace your true spirit, embrace and listen to grace
and be transformed in the moment.
Do not fixate on what you want
but give thanks for what you have.”
Caroline Myss

The present is a gift of grace given to us one day at a time. 
Being thankful for the gift brings undreamt-of blessings.
Then our purpose is made known to us.

Annie at McGuffy’s Reader says,
The negative energy in the world has become thick and oppressive…There is an obvious universal need for more positive energy and peace. And, we can all be part of this affirmative change.

Quotes and Questions #15

 

Q&Q…nothing ever happens quickly (except when it does). Nothing is ever, ever easy (except when it is). And, most of all, nothing ever goes perfectly according to plan (except in the movies).
          Ally Carter
Do you make plans
or do you just let life happen?
I am a let life happen sort of person most of the time. When I do have a plan it is rarely a long-range well thought out plan. I just wake up and think today I will…and go for it. If things work out, great, if they don’t, oh well, tomorrow is another day.

I love the fog…

Chatting this Tuesday at the Cafe

Not much happening today.
But it was a beautiful fall day that started with fog.
I love foggy mornings!
This morning’s fog was exceptional.
