A Happy and Brave Thanksgiving

Tomorrow is Turkey Day and I am thankful for so many things in my life!  This is not about that.  This is about the courage I need to exhibit for the next few days.  I will need to muster up a great deal of bravery to not eat every blooming bite of deliciousness that I see!  Yummy food makes me happy, but feeling like an overstuffed couch pillow does not!

Seriously, how can I happily pass up twice-baked mashed potatoes with cream cheese, cheddar, and bacon?  How do I not sample all six varieties of pie?  In our house, we constantly ask, "What time is it?"  We do so because the answer is always, "Pie:30!" and Pie:30 happens 29 times per day!

Wish me luck, friends!  I do intend to be quite full, but hopefully not to the point of a Monty Python style feeding explosion!  Or, just like last year, I'll overdo it for the 40th year in a row and vow to learn from this year's indulgence.  I guess I'll try to fail forward yet again.  When will I learn!
