End of The Summer Thanksgiving

back to school

I was at the gym today and I overheard a woman talking about buying a turkey for her Labor Day dinner. WOW, I thought, that was strange. I was curious, so I questioned why.

“Oh,” she said, “We celebrate our own type of Thanksgiving.”

Oh now I understand. I clarified, “Giving thanks for a restful summer?”  Or was she grateful for all the time she spent with her children?

“OH NO,” she replies, “I am giving thanks that my kids are going back to school!!”

I told her I wanted to share her idea. Others might like to celebrate back to school time in the same way. Graciously she said sure.

“But promise me you won’t use my name,” she continued.  “I don’t think my kids understand, they just love turkey!!”
