Happy Black Friday Or Something Like That

Standard

Right now millions of shoppers are out at the malls and big box stores fighting to get some great deals. Many have camped outside retailers for days in anticipation of this morning. They are shopping for electronics, toys, clothes and the like. In yesterdays newspaper there were ads with all sorts of door busting deals just for the taking. You have to time it out to be there for the best shot of a bargain.

I hope there will be safety in the chaos and that no one will get into a fight over a TV or a tablet. Today is one of the busiest shopping days of the year so it isn’t for the feint of heart. In the past there have been reports of injuries of people rushing into a store.

Today, I will be at home and glad not to be in all that mess. Best wishes to those who are.

A Gift For You

Standard

I don’t know too many folks who don’t enjoy getting a gift. There are all sorts of occasions in which to give and receive a gift. For many people receiving a gift is how they feel loved and appreciated. In my reading of “The Five Love Languages” there are people who enjoy getting gifts from the ones they love. Giving from heart is a powerful way to show you care. One might think those who love getting gifts as materialistic, but that is not the case. Gifts are anything from getting a single rose to being physically present in someones life. You don’t have to spend much for the ones you love. Its the thought that really counts most. Its not a matter of spending your way into someones heart its a simple act of offering yourself as that precious gift to your loved ones.
