One of the many things that I am Thankful for today is that my Internet is back up and running. I know from many years of experience that I can survive quite soundly without it, but it sure is a nice escape from reality on occasion. I am doubly thankful for the massage pad my Mom gave me for Christmas several years ago. As I sit here writing, it is dueling the many muscle knots in my back. After last nights endeavors, I feel like a pretzel factory across my shoulders and lower back. My third thing to be thankful for today is that I get one extra day off with my family to enjoy some good, old fashioned, family time. I could sit here and ramble on about all my blessings from this past year, but that wouldn't make for good readings, so I a move on.
Coming back around to our Thanksgiving holiday, I would like to remind everyone out there that there are people working yesterday, today, and tonight, to make your Black Friday shopping experience a satisfying one. They will go through long, pain staking processes, and great physical work to make you feel in the Christmas present buying mood. Please, go out and enjoy their establishments and the hard work they've done. They will be thankful you came by when they still have a job next year. Their families will be thankful too, when they carve their Thanksgiving turkey today. We all coincide together. On days like today, let's remember we all have our place in the circle of life, and that we need to help each other out on occasion.
Enough of my retail preaching. I hope you all have a safe and happy holiday weekend. May your soul be at piece for all your blessings, and may your tummy's be full of Turkey. Happy Thanksgiving!
