The pro football team had just finished their daily practice session when a large turkey came strutting onto the field.
While the players gazed in amazement, the turkey walked up to the head coach and demanded a tryout. Everyone stared in silence as the turkey caught pass after pass and ran right through the defensive line.
When the turkey returned to the sidelines, the coach shouted, "You're terrific!!! Sign up for the season, and I'll see to it that you get a huge bonus."
"Forget the bonus," the turkey said, "All I want to know is, does the season go past Thanksgiving Day?"
Thank You, GOD for everything I've experienced here on earth. Thank You for protecting me from the moment of my birth.
And Thank You for the beauty around me everywhere, The gentle rain and glistening dew, the sunshine and the air.
The joyous gift of "feeling" the soul's soft, whispering voice That speaks to me from deep within and makes my heart rejoice.
Oh, GOD, no words are great enough to thank You for just living, And that is why every day is a day for real THANKSGIVING.
