Is Your Turkey Thawed?

Most folks today buy a frozen turkey, thaw it out and cook it for Thanksgiving. Not that many folks are able to buy an unfrozen turkey and cook it within a few days.

So, is your turkey thawed?

How smart is it to stick a frozen turkey in a 350/500-degree oven? Or, dropping a frozen turkey into a boiling pot of oil to fry it?

MMMM….not very smart on either count.

You’re a smart person. You know, as I do, that you have to thaw your turkey, prepare it, before you cook it.

Life’s like that; you have to prepare, get ready, pay your dues, whatever you want to call it, before you can get what you want.

Now, I’ll be the first to agree that you can go to a restaurant and pay for a great Thanksgiving meal. Thousands of people do it every year. It’s easy, no mess, no clean-up.

Life’s like that, too. If you have the resources you can simply pay to quickly get what you want. I don’t think you appreciate the getting if you don’t do the doing, but, hey, that’s just me.

If your turkey isn’t thawed you’d better get going. Thursday’s only 48 hours away.

If your life isn’t what you want you’d better get going. Eternity starts right now.
