Thanksgiving, A Lesson Learned


Thanksgiving, A Lesson Learned

The smell of a roasting turkey on Thanksgiving always brings me back to those years when I was a boy living with my folks in Connecticut. I recall my father tasting the traditional Thanksgiving favorite when it came out of the oven, and he would declare, "This is the best bird ever."

My mother would smile and reply, "Oh, you always say that."

Over the years, I have learned that he was right. At every Thanksgiving, it is always the best bird ever.
