And I agree!
And I recently saw on a blog somewhere, or maybe pinterest, (I don't know!)......this wonderful quote.....
Gratitude turns what we have into enough.
Wonderful......right!?! It pretty much sums it right up! Be grateful, you little punk, because you have enough! (Ok......I might have insinuated that I was talking to a teenager......and probably shaking my finger a time or two, as well! I must have been having a flashback to the 80's, when our house was full of teenagers!)
But it just seems like no one is satisfied anymore......with anything! As though being satisfied is a negative thing. Everyone seems to think they need bigger, better, more......and I just don't understand why there isn't at least a moment of feeling happy about what you have, rather than thinking of the next thing to have.
And sure, I'm guilty of having way too many 13x9 pans, a freezer full of hoarded cranberries, and more than 1 rotary cutter in my sewing room. But I've never stood in line at midnight on Thanksgiving to pay for an item that is going to be improved upon in less than 6 months! What are these people thinking!?! And how can it be possible that there will be people hurt in the crush of getting in the doors, and fights in the parking lots, and all sorts of bedlam......and yet it is promoted and advertised to death! I just don't have any understanding of it! I mean.....come on..... it's just stuff!
But.......if going out on Black Friday is your form of entertainment, then definitely have fun with it! But please be careful, because you are out there with a bunch of lunatics! And I worry about you!
And if staying home warm and safe, and eating leftover candied yams is your thing.....then yay, I'll be joining you.....in spirit.....and with a spoon! :o)
And I'm leaving you with this little list of things I'm truly grateful for this Thanksgiving.......
1. My son will coming home from Bahrain in December. :o)
2. My husband is 2 years cancer free. :o)
3. I don't have to work anymore. :o)
4. I have enough fabric in my stash to last 6 lifetimes. :o)
5. Someone brilliant invented a pill so I can still eat ice cream. :o)
6. I have great blogger friends who inspire and encourage me, and I am a better person for it! :o)
Giving thanks to you all!
Have a wonderful holiday! Eat lots of pie!
