That turkey is such a show-off, just like the one in this parable. I love teaching with parables, stories which illustrate moral or religious lessons. Here's a grand one, just in time for holiday family, friends and fun. And there is a moral to look for.
Turkey and Parrot, A Thanksgiving Parable
I hope you enjoy this simple little, yet super funny story, perfect for your Thanksgiving festivities. Traditionally my family has always shared stories, our thanks of course, made plenty of toasts, and I always wrote plays for the kids.
Once in awhile we found something really fun to share at the table; this one came to me a long time ago from a friend, then I recently sourced it to a book called “All Kinds of Humor”, 2012, so after revision, I am re-posting. The author Dennis Clark wrote it in 1996. Maybe it's familiar to you, there were a couple variations. Anyway, here goes. Get your grin on, and maybe some life lesson may pop into your head....
