November 28th I’m sure you have been busy preparing and celebrating Thanksgiving and did not miss the fact that I did not write for the past two days. What a wonderful feast we had! And I hope yours was equally fulfilling. I’ve been counting my blessings and they are way too numerous to list. Even trying to enumerate the top ones is nearly impossible.
One of our guests was talking about the need for more gratitude and less greed in this country. I think he hit the nail on the head. On this Black Friday, I’m giving thanks that I don’t have to go out and fight with the crowds. I already have enough. When I consider the contrast between Good Friday—which the world considers a most horrible day, but is the most perfect example of total giving—and Black Friday, I am struck by how appropriately named they both are.
