A dad’s encouragement for a holiday ripe with “certainty“.
What can you expect from the this week’s upcoming Thanksgiving feast? There’ll be turkey and stuffing and probably a mashed side-dish. Along with “something new” that’s… “Oh man, is that fish?“ There’ll be pies and jello and many things with a sweet aroma. But what about pastries, whip cream, and oh yes, your diabetic coma? You’ll have seconds and thirds and fourths and fifths. And you’ll likely require chest compressions administered by pounding fists! There’ll be family and football and unbuttoned pants galore. And dad drugged by Tryptophan…he’s past out on the floor. You’ll witness arguments and fights and the occasional physical assault. And gnarly kid wounds from football on asphalt. Over all, it’s a time to reflect and enjoy what’s really important. Like family and friends and your daughters new pet rodent. So approach this Thanksgiving with a light heart and laughter. And keep close those you love, like Fatherhood Factor.
