Good Neighbor Day is the last of September!

An open door,
a kindly heart,
a ready hand to lend.
You're more than special neighbors,
You're also special friends.

Good Neighbor Recipe

1 tongue that does not slander
1 mind full of tolerance
2 ears closed to gossip
2 eyes overlooking other's faults
1 heart generous and kind
2 hands extending to help others
1 dash of wit
Sunny disposition
Blend together the above ingredients. Form into 1 being.
Serve generous portions to everyone you meet.

October is Pastor Appreciation Month! Perhaps your Pastor might like to receive a Thank You card with Praying Hands stamped on it and inside this little poem!

By Author Unknown.

When everything seems to go wrong, just P.U.S.H.!
When the job gets you down, just P.U.S.H!
When people don’t react the way you think they should, just P.U.S.H.!
When giving is low and the bills are due, just P.U.S.H.!
When people don’t understand you, just P.U.S.H.!
* P.U.S.H. = Pray Until Something Happens!*

Pastor, Thanks for being so “pushy”!
In Appreciation, _______ (fill in the blank with your name)!

for a Thanksgiving baggie gift!
Blessing Snack Mix
Bugles = a symbol of the cornucopia, horn of plenty.
Pretzels = represent arms folded in thanks and prayer.
Candy corn = reminds us that during the first winter, the pilgrims were allowed only five kernels of corn per day because food was so scarce.
Orange Candy Slices = is a reminder that Thanksgiving is the celebration of the harvest.
Peanuts = represents seeds, the potential of the bounteous harvest for the next season if they are planted and well tended.

Can't you just see a couple of photos of your family around the Thanksgiving table in your scrapbook along with this poem? Perhaps another photo of your stack of dirty dishes in the sink/dishwasher with a journaling tag inserted behind it with the small Dirty Dishes poem typed on it too!

Images of Thanksgiving Dinner
By Author Unknown.

Some people see the turkey
Roasted to a golden brown.
Some people think of families
That come from out of town.

Some remember fondly
That there’s no school for the day,
And maybe one or two are glad
That Grandma comes to stay.

But when I think “Thanksgiving”
I have some different wishes,
Cause for me it usually means
Just stacks of dirty dishes!

The 12 Days of Thanksgiving.
Author Unknown.
1. We give thanks for the fresh turkey feast and its hot trimmings.
2. We bless the cold turkey sandwiches, sloshy cranberry sauce, and hard rolls.
3. We praise the turkey pie and vintage mixed veggies.
4. We thank the pilgrims for not serving bison that first time, or we’d be celebrating Thanksgiving until April.
5. We gobble up cubed bird casserole and pray for a glimpse of a naked turkey carcass.
6. We show gratitude (sort of) to the creative cook who slings cashews at the turkey and calls it Oriental.
7. We forgive our forefathers and pass the turkey-nugget pizza.
8. The word “vegetarian” keeps popping into our heads.
9. We check our hair to make sure we’re not beginning to sprout feathers.
10. We hope that the wing meat kabobs catch fire under the broiler.
11. We smile over the creamed gizzard because the thigh bones are in sight.
12. We apologize for running out of turkey leftovers.
And everybody says -- “Amen”!

The Mail Carrier.
By Grace Jasmine.

The mail carrier carries mail,
Down every city street.
She stops at every single house,
And delivers holiday treats.

There are boxes from Grandma and Grandpa,
And cards from Uncle Jack.
A mail carrier is almost like Santa,
With a sack upon her back!
