I've said before that I feel bad for turkeys on Thanksgiving not because we eat them, but because they don't know how delicious they are.
Today, instead of feeling bad for turkeys, I will try to focus on the things in life that I am thankful for: the blessings of home, loved ones, and the beautiful world that we live in, the laughter of my children, the health of my family and friends, the forgiving and wonderful God who made me.
And turkeys. I can't help but love them.
