As a “weekend do-it yourselfer” I was at the local Home Depot the day after Halloween and was smacked in the face with push to sell the Christmas items as soon as I walked in the door. The past few years this has really irritated me.
Is our society that blind to the fact that there is still a couple more holidays between Halloween and Christmas?? Has our society become so obsessed with pushing the sales for Christmas that we have forgotten to Give Thanks?
We need to remember the two holidays before Christmas. Veterans Day, a day to thank those that gave their service, their life or a part of their body to protect this great country. THANKSGIVING is a day for us to do just that – GIVE THANKS. We need to realize that life is not jsut about the sales and how much profit we can get from “Black Friday sales”. We need to give thanks tfor havign the ability to be above ground and realize what life has to offers each and every one of us.
Every day is a blessing, yesterday is gone, tomorrow is not a gaurentee, so accept today for what it really is, THE PRESENT. Give thanks not only today and everyday, but especially on Thanksgiving.
