So, can you all believe that Thanksgiving is tomorrow? Geez, this month has flown by, for me anyway! This will be my last post until until this weekend, although I have several deals posts waiting in the wings, which will be posted for you all! This year I am so thankful for all of the blessings this blog has brought into my life. From meeting amazing fellow bloggers, to being able to review subscription services and products, as well as being able to post about awesome, affordable ways to save money for families, like my own, I want to let each and every reader know, how amazing you all are!I am so utterly thankful for you! This year will be a relatively quiet, at-home Thanksgiving for my husband and I, full of new found ways to smoke, bake, and grill turkey, as well taking time this year to appreciate the small things in our lives we hold so dear, one another. I will also be taking time to speak to my Grandmother, who turned the big 7-0 yesterday, and is still as feisty, able-bodied, and as jolly as she can be for this season of her life! I will also be taking a break this year from Black Friday shopping, focusing more on Cyber Monday deals this year, to both celebrate more time at home, as well as in solidarity for those workers who increasingly, work a retail environment, on Thanksgiving, without overtime, complimentary meals, or the life. I will be keeping those workers, and their families, in my thoughts this year. While I know that many industries, including .com corporations, cellular providers, telecommunication companies, and public works employees will be working Thanksgiving, their working conditions are not nearly as hostile, forced, or as demoralizing in nature as the previously mentioned. This time of year, I often think of the workers, in the retail industry who help to provide my family the deals, promotions, and savings we depend on daily. For those who will be schlepping out this Black Friday, please be safe, prepared, even-tempered, and thankful for the savings at your disposal! Please take a moment and wish your cashiers, store assistants, and managers a wonderful holidays season. For those eating out, tip well, including delivery drivers. Be kinder to postal and carrier drivers.And to anyone who has helped you this year, bless their lives with the pleasure of hearing seasons greetings, in a positive capacity from the public at large, like you!
Beyond all of this, I will be taking some time to enjoy my own quiet personal health victories, by stepping out onto my back patio, and watching my Japanese Maple sway in the breeze, which can be seen below!
What are you thankful for? Please share in the comments.
