GIVE THANKS

http://www.retaillawadvisor.com/files/2015/11/bigstock-Black-Friday-Sale-background-53695669.jpg I awoke while everyone else was still warm and cuddly in their beds; even my dog was cuddled up in the bed still with my son. It was even to early for him. I kept the lights off not to awake anyone as I walked down the stairs to the kitchen. I gave thanks for my family, dog, and house. I entered the chilled kitchen, turned of the lights, and the oven since I was going to use it anyway on Mr. Tom Turkey. I prepared the coffee, and started to gather the items necessary for the feast. Thanksgiving once again and blessed to have one. Being the only one awake made it possible to have a cup of coffee alone and in silence. I turned on the radio for company. Christmas music was playing putting me in the mood. I love this time of the year; even though I do not get snow. I gave thanks for the electricity, my coffee, and the alone time. The turkey was awaiting in the fridge to be seasoned, butter, and stuffed. I almost cut my fingers as I was chopping the vegetables as I heard of the hours for the stores for the "BLACK FRIDAY" hours. I was totally appalled to hear that some stores were going to be opened the same evening of Thanksgiving. I gave thanks I was no longer working retail. Companies couldn't just let there hard working staff have one full day with there families and friends for the day of THANKS. I know it is all about the money when it comes to business, but let us not forget the people that make it happen and what they give to make it happen. I give thanks The family had arisen and now dressed and ready to enjoy the preparing of the grand meal and the joining of the whole family. The little ones at their table and the elders at theirs we prayed,"Dear God, we thank thee for the blessings that you bestowed upon us and the ones that join us at this table. Those that could not be with us this day, be with them and keep them well. The meal we are about to feast upon, let it nourish our bodies as well as our souls. Let us not forget for whom makes it possible; which is you dear Lord. We pray....AMEN." We Give and Gave THANKS
