An Ode to Gobblers

Last year's Thanksgiving preparations apparently made me wax poetic.
I think.

Last year is a bit of a blur.

But I thought we would revisit that moment of posting inspiration today while you chop and clean and scald and whisk and all the rest...

On the day before Thanksgiving, 1 of 8 said to me,
"Why are there two turkeys?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, 2 of 8 said to me,
"Can you make stuffing that's gluten-free?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, 3 of 8 said to me,
"Why does the whole house have to be cleaned?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, 4 of 8 said to me,
"Why do they call these things table 'leaves'?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, 5 of 8 said to me,
"How does all that turn into gravy?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, 6 of 8 said to me,
"Can I only eat the green beans?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, 7 of 8 said to me,
"Pinch...Bubby....me...."

On the day before Thanksgiving, 8 of 8 said to me,
"Me....Sissy pinch....sorry...."

On the day before Thanksgiving, The Boy said to me,
"Are we going to have that canned jelly cranberry thing?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, Michael said to me,
"Who cares if the kitchen floor is crunchy?"

On the day before Thanksgiving, I whispered to Thee,
"Lord, You are so good, so full of blessing."
