As I was leaving a comment for my daughter on her MySpace, I noticed a little section she had added that listed things in her life that she wouldn’t trade for anything. She had things like racing horses down the beach with her best friends, ACS (Methodist Youth Conference) and Thanksgiving with her whole family. I smiled as I read the list of moments in her life that she wouldn’t trade for anything. Those moments in our lives are what Thanksgiving is about. It’s not about whether the turkey is perfect or if the pie is right. Usually at our house, the turkey is done when the smoke alarm goes off. myspace thanksgiving comments

So I had better cover myself.

Alabama aught to be mad as heck, and there is just no telling what will happen.
