Today is Thanksgiving, 2018. It’s time for us to stuff ourselves beyond capacity – to fill every empty cavity with carbs and sugar – a time to forget about calories and just let it rip. After that, it’s a time to watch football, if you’re so inclined. If not, you may have spread the newspaper advertising for Black Friday all across the room. You make this part of the tradition of Thanksgiving.
Seems there are lots of traditions for Thanksgiving. It’s time to share a meal with those you love – not to discuss anything political – stuff your face – eat some more pie. You will suffer from indigestion, fatigue, stress, anticipation – just to name a few results of Thanksgiving.
You gather at the dining room table, trying to put twelve people around a table for six. By the time you’ve finished eating, you can barely move so you find a place to stretch out and catch a few winks before your favorite team comes on the tube. Those few winks can turn into a rip roaring, loud and imposing sound of snoring and sleep assisted by Tryptophan. When you wake it’s time to hit the stores for all those magnificent prices. There are sales everywhere.
Talk about the perfect situation for renewing relationships and starting over. It’s a time to forgive and forget – feel nostalgic – overindulge and have fun.
I hope you all enjoy a wonderful day today. May your blessings be many. May you walk through life with the Lord at your side. May you be shielded by His presence as you venture into the world of retail. Remember this:
What did the turkey say to the computer? “Google, google, google.”
