  • Thanksgiving thoughts

    Thanksgiving sounds pretty easy, doesn’t it?  But it isn’t always, is it?  Circumstances may make it hard to give thanks.  Maybe this year was a bad year and everything went wrong.  You know, like those old country songs where everything goes wrong and even your dog runs away!

    Do you remember playing tag when you were a kid? Running away from whoever was “it,” or trying to catch anyone you could if you were “it.”  Fun for the fast kids, a little harder for those of us who were a little slower.

    One day I was playing tag with my cousins on their farm.  I was “it,” and chased my cousin around a little stable and ran right into a plow.  My cousin had known the plow was there and turned the right way to miss it, but I plowed right into it.
