Bobby the Butcher is Thankful for his Butcher Shop

“That certainly was a busy Thanksgiving for my butcher shop,” said Bobby the Butcher to himself, as he locked up the butcher shop for the night.

Bobby was exhausted but he felt good about the success of the shop this season. He couldn’t believe the amount of turkey and ham orders that he processed.

“It has to be because of the glowing knife,” thought Bobby.

Bobby was handed down a glowing butcher knife that belonged to his father and his grandfather. When the knife glows, it is a sign that it is in the possession of the right person.

“Lately,” thought Bobby. “That knife has been glowing a lot.”

Bobby’s grandfather had purchased the knife from a traveling salesman, years ago. Bobby’s grandfather and father both had great success running the butcher shop. Once Bobby’s father died, Bobby’s Aunt Jessica took over the shop.

Aunt Jessica was the black sheep of the family. She dabbled in witchcraft. She almost had the butcher shop in bankruptcy. Luckily, she realized she wasn’t the right person to be running it so she handed the shop over to Bobby. She also noticed the knife didn’t glow when it was in her possession.

“I am very thankful for the butcher shop,” said Bobby. “It was always my dream to run our family business.”


Moral of this Story:

  • It is good to be thankful for a family business.
  • Example: Bobby the Butcher is thankful that Aunt Jessica let him run the family butcher shop.
