Sometimes you get what you wish for

As my son-in-law finished carving the turkey for yesterday's early Thanksgiving dinner, my two daughters pulled the wishbone. The one who ended up with the short, broken end of the bone smiled and said to her sister, "Well, it's your loss. I wished to be a better person."

We all had a good laugh, but I've been thinking today what a great world this would be if everybody made wishes like that.


  1. A wonderful wish. Remind her there's always the first star, on any given night.

  2. What a sense of humor! Hey, how do you decide who gets to pull the wishbone?

  3. Sisters!!!! What more is there to say.

  4. Yes, it would be, Velvet.

    Wishing you a wonderful and happy week-long Thanksgiving celebration.

  5. You have some pretty special girls there, Velvet. And the 'loser' must really be a winner - if those are the kinds of things she wishes for!!

  6. D.I., she read your comment and did that very thing, just last night.

    Janet, our scientific wishbone-pulling formula has something to do with how far away from the turkey carver people are standing.

    Annie, that says it all.

    Sunflower, thanks and right back atcha.

    Jackie, they turned out pretty good in spite of me.
