Let the holidays begin

Two weeks from today we will celebrate Thanksgiving.  A great day to count our blessings of and with family and friends.

I sure hope that this presidential campaign doesn't spoil the forthcoming holiday.  So many people at odds over each other choices.  There is much dissent between peoples even to the point of exclusion of others because of their choice(s).   I may not agree with others and their choices but I can respect that they have their right to choose as do I.  That is the biggest thing I have noticed is the huge division among us.  As author Byron Katie wrote about there are three kinds of business, mine theirs and God's.  So be it.
Today I am grateful all those political ads and signs are done with. Free up the landscape to enjoy ourselves and hopefully with Thanksgiving, the healing can begin, cause really turkey, dressing, and pumpkin pie makes everything better.

  1. This is the first year I've see so many signs kicked down or defaced. Out of curiousity I looked up fines. "Police say anyone caught damaging or stealing an election sign could be issued a municipal citation with fines ranging from $376 for theft to $691 for criminal damage to property."

  2. I intend to speak out if anyone decides to discuss politics at the Thanksgiving table. Don't want my mood or meal ruined!

    1. I have done really good about staying out of the fray, it doesn't do good to get into arguments and it is never works out well trying to make another wrong. Just going to keep reciting the Serenity Prayer in my head.
