My Gratitude List. (You’re on it.)

What’s your favorite Thanksgiving saying?

Here is another one I like.

“Thankfulness is the quickest path to joy.”

And this is what I wish you today as we head into Thanksgiving weekend.

I wish you much joy as you celebrate the blessings of your family, faith, nation, and our wonderful community of Frankenmuth.

Hopefully, all of your favorite food and loved ones are right there with you wherever you will mark this special holiday.

And don’t let the turkeys confuse you – like they have this poor guy.

I guess – like most everything in life – what we choose to be thankful for begins with a choice.

No doubt everyone counts their blessings differently.

And this is a good thing, in my view.

It’s one of the reasons our theme for this school year is “What’s Your Story?”

We’re all unique.

And this is something else we’re striving to explore and appreciate in our schools.

For example, not everyone appreciates Thanksgiving riddles.

But I do!

And I simply wish you a Happy Thanksgiving without passing a few of them onto you.

What do you get when you cross a turkey and a centipede?
(lots and lots of drumsticks!)

If the pilgrims were alive today, what would they be most famous for?
(their age)

I have ears but I can’t hear. I have flakes but no hair. What am I?

What kind of music did the pilgrims like most?
(Plymouth rock)

Why did the turkey cross the road?
(to prove he wasn’t a chicken)

Where do turkeys go to dance?
(the Butter Ball)

Now, despite how you and I might view the value of these riddles, hopefully, one thing we’d all agree on is that in Frankenmuth we’re blessed to be EAGLES, and not turkeys.

So, thank you for all you do to encourage and support our entire FSD school family.

There’s a very good reason you’re on my Gratitude List.

Happy Thanksgiving!
