I may not always follow instructions, but come on, these are pretty basic.

Talk about stubborn. Here we are on the dawn of a national holiday–a holiday equipped with directions:

Give Thanks.

And what do we do? Squeeze all the sincere, loving, caring times in by seven pm so that a portion of our citizens can bear this storm and head out to work so the other part can go shopping. Shopping?




How about this? Allow yourself one day, even one evening, to sit around with family, neighbors, relatives–friends and just hang out.

Eat, laugh, share stories, create new ones, watch the games, and appreciate the fact that we can do this.

Black Friday is just a few hours away–the crowds–the bargains–the shopping.

Everything you want to buy will be there in the morning, even at midnight,
but the times, they are here now.




Give Thanks

    Amen Colleen! Hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving. The time with the people we love is precious, never enough, and infinitely more valuable than anything we can get on sale for holiday shopping. Many blessings to you and your family!
