Thanksgiving Sales Frenzy

I'm not sorry to say that I will never support stores in going out on Thanksgiving Day to buy - stuff.  Just like the deal with grocery stores now being open until 6:00 pm.  Are there not enough days leading up to Thanksgiving to be able to buy whatever you need in advance?  Christmas is what, 30 something days off, and we need to degrade the spirit of THIS day for the commercialization of a future holiday?

No.  I don't care how good the deals are, I wasn't going and I won't be going.  Stores should shut down, just like they "used" to on Thanksgiving and Christmas Day.  Even if you don't celebrate the day as it once was, doesn't it seem even necessary that there are a couple of days per year where most everyone can expect not to work and get together with others?  I know, I wrote about this a couple of days ago, but the desperation from retailers is crossing the line in a big way, at least with me.  I'm not saying I won't ever go to their sto…

Happy Thanksgiving 11/25/2010

Just want to wish a happy Thanksgiving to everyone, especially regular readers from all over the net (and world) - even if your country doesn't celebrate this particular holiday.  I am going to my mother's house this afternoon with Caleb to visit and partake and then coming home to another feast afterwards.

I am thankful, more than anything, for the love of the Lord in my life.  I am thankful, also, to have a roof over my head; food to eat; a job to go to to bring home the bacon; a car to drive to get to work;  I'm thankful for what family I have left and friends.

I hope you all have a great day, it's good to be alive.
