I promised myself that I would be grateful for all that I had, not what I’d miss.
And finally, my guy and I decided we’d order a turkey for our small Thanksgiving table – just the two of us.
We called our favorite local farm, where we buy our fresh veggies and meats and sandwiches and desserts and, well, you get the picture. We are firm believers in SHOP LOCAL.
But alas, so are many people in our community; the farm’s turkeys had been sold out weeks ago.
We called several other local stores, with the same story, at least for the small, eight pound variety.
So, on Wednesday morning we picked up our last choice – a 16 pounder. Holy Toledo Turkey!
But this is where the Holy comes in. Several single people live nearby. Why not share some roasted turkey with a few of them? How about the lady down the street with the cat she rescued two years ago? And that fellow next block over who fills his four bird feeders every day, just like Mister in my book Molly Finds Her Purr?
The good news is, we don’t have that much turkey left over today. The even better news is that my publisher sent me a link, linking Mister, and the widow with the rescued cat, and a holiday deal. https://www.borgopublishing.com/product-page/two-children-s-picture-books-by-pamela-wight
