Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. Oh what fun it is to ride, in a one horse open sleigh, hey! Dashing through the snow, in a one horse open sleigh. O'er the fields we go, laughing all the way. Bells on bob tails ring, making spirits bright, what fun it is to lauhg and sing a sleighing song tonight!
Oh Christmas tree, oh Christmas tree. Thy leaves are so unchanging. Rockin' around the Christmas tree, have a happy holidays. Everyone dancin' merrily, in the new old fashioned way! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way. Oh what fun it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh, hey! Deck the halls with boughs of holly, falalalalalalala. Tis the season to be jolly, falalalalalalala. Said the night wind to the little lamb. Do you see what I see way up in the sky little lamb? Do you see what I see, a star, a star dancing in the night with a tail as big as a kite, with a tail as big as a kite.
How was your Thanksgiving holiday? Did you get enough turkey? I certainly hope so. I had plenty of turkey - too much, in fact. I had three Thanksgivings and a Christmas dinner last week. That is a lot of turkey, sweet potatoes, stuffing and rolls!
When I think of Thanksgiving, I think of great times with family, friends, food and football. That's right, it wouldn't be turkey day without football. After my Thanksgiving, my family all gathered in the game room to watch a whole lot of football. And if you were watching, you know that Saturday was chalk-full of some great games.
It's the day before Thanksgiving. And you know what that means? It's two days before Black Friday! That's right, the biggest shopping day of the year. Like, by far the biggest. Any of my loyal blog readers planning on hitting it up? For some people, Black Friday shopping is family tradition. The holiday weekend goes about like this: wake up early on Thursday to cook the feast, cook all morning, eat around 2 p.m., watch a little football, fall asleep on the couch thanks to the tryptophan found in turkey (an amino acid that makes us humans tired, tired, tired), wake up and eat a snack of turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce and cream corn, plan for the Black Friday extravaganza, rest a little, and then.... SHOP, SHOP, SHOP!!!
It's a word I have been reflecting on for the past week or so. Thankfulness is as thankfulness does. And tomorrow is the day we express our thankful hearts.
A thankful person is a joy to be around, wouldn't you say? A thankful person is kind, thoughtful and pleasant. Thankfulness is also contagious. You ever notice that phenomenon? If one person says thank you, it can spread through room like a wild fire (and I mean that in the best sense!). So, our couriers DFW are going to start a thankfulness wildfire right here on our blog. So hold onto your hats because here is our big fat list of things we are thankful for:
What goes up must come down. Thank you Einstein for forever making me feel like a fool. Should the world have been left up to my personal genius, we would probably all still be staring a stone hoping it would turn into a wheel. Luckily, there were men like Isaac Newton who described gravity and the three laws of motion. At some point in my earlier life, I knew the three laws by memory. I just read them over again, and they sound like gibberish. Oh the beauties of age. In any case, Newton began the case for what goes up, must come down. Eistein brought it home with his theory of relativity and whatnot (another source of gibberish for my highly unscientific mind).
Kinsler, Andrus, Hamilton, Beltre, Young, Napoli, Moreland, Murphy, Gentry, Snyder, Gonzalez. Now that is quite the batting line-up.
