Ah, the day before Thanksgiving and spirits soar in anticipation of a great meal and celebrations with families.  The weather looks good for travel.  The outdoors have a crisp, clean smell of fall even though I see snowflakes gently cascading down from the heavens, like the heart of winter.   Eventually everyone needs an Obama break, and this holiday is mine to say how thankful I am that we have free elections. 

Former VP candidate, Sarah Palin pardoned one turkey at The Triple D Farms in Wasilla, Alaska named Thanksgiving. http://www.necn.com/Boston/Politics/2008/11/21/Palin-pardons-turkey-names-it/1227291463.html  During her interview other turkeys in the background made there last gobble as they were slaughtered, and the MSM showed her no remorse in it’s coverage of it. Hunters, fishermen, trappers, etc., who understand game functions must be especially amused. Guess what, if you eat meat someone has to slaughter it.  Suck it up already.  BTW the turkey at 30 pounds is being donated to a local church and I’d be it won’t have it’s feathers by the time it gets there.

“You cannot take the heat, and you’re definitely going to stay out of the kitchen,” Bush said to the birds at the 60th annual turkey pardoning at the White House. Named, May and Flower they will be spared from the 165 degree oven heat and fly first class to the more moderate temperatures at Disney World, living in the backyard of Mickey Mouse’s Country House at the Magic Kingdom.

Even though our family isn’t home base for dinner, we will still prepare our own bird with all the trimmings and am grateful it wasn’t me who had to raise, and slaughter it myself.  We raised chickens this spring and summer and took them to slaughter with our children in tow.  With no trauma, my kids understand what it takes to work the land and raise animals.  They do not take food for granted- even Chicken McNuggets have a new meaning.  Those adults who act childish in making fun of Palin, ought to be spanked and get coal in there stockings. 

I stumbled into this blog and its merits are worth repeating on this Thanksgiving Holiday. “…..For He has been good to me.—Psalm 13:6.I have so much, so many good things in my life.  No, not money.  But I am so thankful that without great monetary wealth and riches, I am not hungry, nor cold, nor without clothing to wear.  My heart is full to bursting with love for and from family and friends, who would do anything for me, and I for them.  

I am overwhelmed with gratitude for the piece of land upon which I live.  The same acres my grandfather purchased over a half-century ago, with hard-earned dollars, give me space and room to roam among the pecan trees, the hay meadow, alongside the creek.  I give thanks to our good Father for allowing me to just be here.

I am extremely thankful that God gave me a heart that loves dogs. So many people missed out on this, and I am sorry for them every day.  My dogs are my tangible, earthly, everyday reminder of a God who loves us no matter what.  My dogs are the very embodiment of love and joy in living, and I am a better person because I love them.

I am thankful beyond words that I live in America.  This country is a gift to all of us, despite problems, big and small.  Infinite opportunities abound, and I am thankful for those opportunities available to me and to everyone.

“I will sing to the Lord for He has been good to me”.  So very good.

Happy Thanksgiving, all.  http://conservativepup.wordpress.com/2008/11/26/i-will-sing-to-the-lord/#comment-40
