You say you love me.
You say you are casual,
yet your list of rules to live by forbids me to be me!
In sadness I tried to be
but in relief and joy
I WALK AWAY WITH MY CREATOR
yet never unaccompanied.

Used to be when new folks came to our neighborhood we welcomed them, made friends, greeted them with homemade bread or a meal . . . we all got along and lasting, valued relationships were created.

As we approach Thanksgiving and our focus on giving thanks moves to the forefront where it belongs, I am reminded of my dearly departed best friend and sister in Christ, Becky. So many stories to share, late night giggles, discoveries, problems solved over ice cream, and the 3 hour phone calls . . . but as soon as my eyes fell upon the word mythical, I thought of turkeys!
As the story began, we chatted on the phone, Becky, my goddaughter Alice, and I. Alice eagerly shared the tale of the mythical turkeys! She and her folks had driven through the beautiful mountain roads to visit the grandparents and in grandma’s neighborhood their journey was halted as a family of turkeys crossed the road. When my friends reached their destination, they shared the turkey encounter and were told “never seen any wild turkeys around here!”
Each time, from that visit on,they met the family of turkeys en route to grandma’s and she always responded that same way and called them “mythical turkeys.” Alice waited for the day grandma would finally see them, but the day never came. There are NO mythical turkeys in NC, I assure you. Upon my visit with my friends I SAW THE TURKEYS! THEY ARE REAL!

Perhaps it’s just me but I tend to associate the word craving with food. This could explain my hips . . . but I was thinking there are many things I yearn for or desire. Here are the ones that popped into my head. Laughing is okay! Feel free!
- A cruise
- A nap
- The cute guy at church!
- A smaller waistline
- To trust as much as my dog trusts me!
- Grand kids
- To author a best seller
- Liverwurst on rye!
Oh, dear! I blew it with the last one, but it’s time for my lunch! Lol

As a society, we are so serious . . . focused. Sometimes, we need to be frivolous! I KNOW! Sounds like a contradiction, but we bind ourselves with unnecessary rules and focus so often on culture and opinions which are meaningless! I say sing, dance, run outside in the rain, be silly!
