There are 10 days left until Thanksgiving and for most people, this is a day where family gets together and spends time together. Whenever you get family together, there are bound to be strong emotions. While an occasional argument may erupt, there are sure to at least be a moment or two of laughter somewhere in the mix. This Mirthful Monday is dedicated to families and the laugh out loud moments they bring!
A little boy opened the big and old family Bible with fascination, he looked at the old pages as he turned them. Then something fell out of the Bible and he picked up and looked at it closely. It was an old leaf from a tree that has been pressed in between pages. “Momma, look what I found”, the boy called out. “What have you got there, dear?” his mother asked. With astonishment in the young boy’s voice he answered: “I think it’s Adam’s suit!”
One day a sweet little girl becomes puzzled about her origin. “How did I get here, Mommy?” she asks.
Her mother replies, using a well-worn phrase, “Why God sent you, Honey.”
“And did God send you too, Mommy?” she continues. “Yes, Sweetheart, he did.”
“And Daddy, and Grandma and Grandpa, and their moms and dads, too?”
“Yes, Honey, all of them, too.”
The child shakes her head in disbelief. “Then you’re telling me there’s been no sex in this family for over 200 years? No wonder everyone is so grouchy!”
Insanity is hereditary; you get it from your children. (Sorry, Mom!)
My dad gave me this advice “Son, there are a couple of times in a man’s life
when he does not understand a woman” “What are they” I enquired. “Before
marriage and also after marriage”.
The average mother takes two whole days to prepare for Thanksgiving dinner but most kids don’t really care. I have taken an informal but exhaustive poll of kids and have come to the conclusion that if Twinkies came with drumsticks, all turkeys would die of old age.
It was the first time the blonde was eating Thanksgiving dinner without her family. Trying to re-enact the tradition, she prepared a dinner for herself alone. The next day, her mother called to see how everything went.
“Oh, mother, I made myself a lovely dinner, but I had so much trouble trying to eat the turkey!” said the daughter.
“Did it not taste good?” her mother asked. “I don’t know,” the blonde said. “It wouldn’t sit still!”
This is ONE way of getting your family to your home for the holidays:
