“Mrs. Dalloway said she would buy the flowers herself…then have an apple cider martini with cinnamon and sugar on the rim. Making the desserts first. Bourbon balls, bourbon cupcakes, pumpkin pie, and pecan bars. Then there’s the shoving of my arm elbow deep into a dead bird, then coating it with oil, which, in some Amish man’s head, is porn. White trash green beans (the dried onions are even cheddar this year, oh the humanity) and sour cream mashed potatoes. Rolls. Grape almond stuffing. The twins are making the homemade butter in Mason jars with heavy whipping cream and sea salt. And the gravy, always the gravy between us, Leonard…(Tips her hat to Virginia Woolf) Happy Thanksgiving to everyone I love, which is most of you, and to those I don’t, I’ll endeavor to find a way. A toast…to absent friends.”

Happy Thanksgiving from The Juice Bar!

Be Thankful

Be thankful that you don’t already have everything you desire,
If you did, what would there be to look forward to?

Be thankful when you don’t know something
For it gives you the opportunity to learn.

Be thankful for the difficult times.
During those times you grow.

Be thankful for your limitations
Because they give you opportunities for improvement.

Be thankful for each new challenge
Because it will build your strength and character.

Be thankful for your mistakes
They will teach you valuable lessons.

Be thankful when you’re tired and weary
Because it means you’ve made a difference.

It is easy to be thankful for the good things.
A life of rich fulfillment comes to those who are
also thankful for the setbacks.

GRATITUDE can turn a negative into a positive.
Find a way to be thankful for your troubles
and they can become your blessings.
