Giving thanks...

I was weeping as I went to pick up my son, his wife, and their new(er) baby boy.

I was listening to some favorite church hymns in my car.  The kids came in two days before Thanksgiving. That was really smart.  They beat the traffic at the departing and arriving airports.  The babe was on his first airplane flight and the SWA flight attendants all signed a certificate with his name on it!  Very cool...and good for biz.

I was overwhelmed with gratitude...not just for this lovely time together, but for the world as I saw it. And I admit that I see things a bit wonky.  But in my book Thanksgiving is one of the most meaningful (read holiest) days of each year.

Black Friday, on the other hand, to me, is a disgusting day.  Shopping for anything on Pre-Black Friday except for forgotten Thanksgiving Day food items, is a sin in my book.  Sure I get that people like to get good deals...but can't the advertisers just kind of leave it alone for a few hours on Thanksgiving Thursday?

Can't…
