There are consequences for pushing.

Perhaps, it’s just me, but I hate the way Thanksgiving has lost it’s significance. I have much to say about this, but that will have to wait until Monday’s post. Today, I’m doing a “Throwback Thursday” by sharing a post that originally appeared two years ago in advance of Thanksgiving.

Be sure to stop by on Monday to find out how I really feel about the loss of Thanksgiving Thursday.

Front porch lessons. (Wednesday’s Wisdom)

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:

Hey, wait your turn fat boy! No pushing. My holiday comes first!
Hey, wait your turn FAT BOY! No pushing. My holiday comes first!

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.

On second thought, after you. I insist!

Only to realize, things aren’t always as they seem…

There are consequences for pushing.

How will you keep from pushing too hard this holiday season?

Wishing everyone a very happy and “push-free” day before Thanksgiving!

  1. I LOVE Christmas. It is my absolute favorite holiday! Perhaps that is why I get sooo agrgavated that it is being shoved down our throats! I don’t start shopping, listening to Christmas music or decorating until after Thanksgiving. I don’t shop Black Friday.


  2. Super cute story and pics. I am adament that not one Christmas decoration, light, or song comes into our around my home until AFTER December 1st. I can’t stand how stores have swimsuits on the racks in January and Christmas on the shelves in July! Thanks for sharing my sentiments! XOXO-Kasey
