They are “thank you.” It only takes an instance to say thank you, which suddenly becomes an action as well as a gift to someone else as our expression of our very own thanks. You are the person who gives away the thanks. Now put two other words together, and you have the one word: Thanksgiving.

Nothing sweet about parting

November 4, 2012

By EMILY JONES

They say parting is such sweet sorrow. 

Not so, there’s nothing sweet about it. It’s an anxiety ridden, heart palpitation-producing, soul-wrenching experience that has turned my life upside down.

Texas A&M had 386 yards of total offense by halftime and ended up with 693 to soundly defeat Mississippi State 38-13 at Davis Wade Stadium.
