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!
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!

A public service announcement

As a public service, I’m here to warn you about something I did so you can all avoid making the same mistake.

DON’T EVER BUY THESE CHIPS. Just don’t, unless…..

Warning: danger lies within this sealed bag.
Warning: danger lies within this sealed bag.

you are willing to confess to this…and reading blogs all day.

Not my fault. No siree, Bob!

The bag looks innocent enough, but I caution you, it’s a black hole, a vortex, with yummy in-flight snacks.

No, I wasn’t compensated for this post in any way (though I’d be happy to work for another trip into this vortex bag.) I just figured confession is good for the soul, so here I am.  And, as long as I’m confessing my transgressions, I didn’t share. (That’s a perk that comes with having older children; my food is my own once again.) Now, with the absence of a mirror in front of me , I blame the Food Should Taste Good company and NaBloPoMo for my gluttony. Great (not just good) chips and great reading make for a sinful combination. Ya, it was their fault.

The confessional is now open. Feel free to use the comment section to unburden your souls.
