Now, on with my show…
I’m one of those who loves Black Friday. On Black Friday. I don’t want to leave my family, or the relaxation of home, or the mindset of openness, safety and thanks that permeates our home on Thanksgiving Day to go shop. But come before the crack of dawn Friday morning and I’m excited and up and ready to go.
This year, there won’t be a lot of places to go. I’m seeing that a lot of stores are open from 5am until 1am on Thanksgiving, but not opening until 8am on Friday. And another change – there are sales on the Internet right now – Black Friday deals like I used to find only when I got up at the crack before dawn on Black Friday. Today I saw one such deal. I called my mother and a purchase was made on line. I’ve already picked it up from the store and delivered it to her. No waiting. No hassle. Not as much fun, either.
But One thing I’ve learned about life is that it changes. And it’s counterproductive not to accept that. But the world’s change doesn’t mean that I have to change what I know to be important to me. I’m not going to shop on Thanksgiving. I’m still planning to be up early on Friday. To scout out the deals. To have fun with my honey and get some breakfast out and buy Christmas gifts. I just won’t be at Best Buy at 5am. And I might spend an extra dollar or two. I’m okay with that.
Happy Thanksgiving, Everyone. I hope each and every one of you feel loved. Appreciated. Please know that I appreciate your support here.
Tim and I are cooking the turkey on Thanksgiving Day. (And dressing and scalloped corn and green beans, too.) What will you be doing?
