From the front porch, my mama taught me:
- To wait my turn.
- That it’s rude to push or shove.
- Name calling is unacceptable.
- And, patience is a virtue.
Now, I’m not pointing fingers, but isn’t it funny how some forget that at this most wonderful time of year.
I share the lessons from my front porch yesterday:
Sad. Et tu, Turkey?
But, just when I thought all hope was lost for a gracious holiday season, I was surprised by this random act of kindness moments later.
Only to realize, things aren’t always as they seem…
How will you keep from pushing too hard this holiday season?
Wishing everyone a very happy and “push-free” day before Thanksgiving!
(With gratitude to my archer and her little sister for the re-enactment and documentation of yesterday’s events. :))

That was so cute! Your archers did a great job. I am sure I will see some of the best and worst of it as I work at Kohl’s starting at midnight Thanksgiving! I am thankful they don’t open any sooner. God bless you and yours, we have so very much to be thankful for : – )
I hope you survived your midnight madness! Yes, we have so much to be thankful for, including our friendship with you and your family. Blessings back to all of you!
Oh, just truly awesome. Maybe Santa was being altruistic in the last one?
Maybe, Santa really was being altruistic when he “took one for The Bird.” I didn’t post the picture of the deflated Santa. I was afraid it might scare the kids.
I’m scared that if I don’t comment on this, I’ll get shot by a bow and arrow.
Jason, your comment made me laugh so hard, I almost sprayed my screen with coffee! Probably good you left a comment because my little archer is on the state team and rarely misses a target. 😉
Thanks for stopping by and sharing your comment.
Great way to start my day! 😉 Thanks for the giggle, and for a fun coffee-time catch-up yesterday! Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours!
Thanks, Cindy! Loved our time yesterday, too! Need to do that again–soon. And, a very happy Thanksgiving to you and yours as well!
