I know it's nowhere near Thanksgiving.
I'm not sure it's "permissible" to link to a hallmark ecard, but this is one of my favorites of all time.
Check out what Sir Thomas the Turkey is thankful for.
My favorite: "He is like a angel."
Ha ha ha.
I got a message from a friend the other day. She was updating on what has been going on in her life and at the end she wrote, "He's so wonderful."
God, that is. He's the wonderful one. Her sincerity made me smile.
And it also reminded me of the turkey's comments.
How the farmer is like God: good to the turkey who does not deserve it.
But what the turkey doesn't know is that the farmer has ulterior motives.
In that way, the farmer is not like God. God is good to us because he is good to us. Not because he wants to plumpen us up and eat us.
Anyhow, I liked the way she nonchalantly threw it out there, "He's so wonderful," as if she was talking about a friend. Someone she knew. Like she might also say of some friend she met, "He's so cool."
It was genuine.
And true, unlike the turkey's ascertainment of the farmer.
A very happy reminder in an often cold and dark world.
