Today is traditionally one of the busiest and most profitable days of the holiday retail season. Like Thanksgiving, Black Friday is going to look different. Not as many will be rushing to retailers, but more online buying. However, there are people who will brave the conditions of the day to get those deals. I predict that many will just stay close to home with their computers and credit cards at the ready. No matter what, safety first everyone.
No matter what you are looking for may the odds be ever in your favor. Happy deal hunting. Also just have a great Friday if you aren’t all into this stuff.
It’s Thanksgiving day here in America. A day set aside for us to give thanks for what we have. It’s a very different Thanksgiving in the world of COVID-19 we live in. There are many reasons to have a grateful heart among the tragedy and turmoil. Be mindful of those we have lost in these months and those who are working and serving on a day where being with loved ones is the rule of the holiday.
My hope is that you are gathered in small groups around a table enjoying a meal that will bring you together or virtually connecting on Zoom or an old fashioned phone call.
To all around the world may you have a spirit of thanks on this day. Grace and peace and love to all.
To my dear friends in Canada I wish you a great Thanksgiving Day whether you are celebrating on Sunday or Monday. May your plates be full, and your hearts warmed in this time. It’s a different holiday this year but the wishes of togetherness with family and friends is eternal. Be well and safe. Grace and peace to you all from Nova Scotia to British Columbia and all the places in between.
To all those who work and have worked thank you for your service and sacrifice. You are the heroes that keep our world moving. A special shout out to those who have worked in tough situations during the pandemic, we see you doing your best. Rock on!
Juneteenth is an annual observance on June 19 to remember when Union soldiers enforced the Emancipation Proclamation and freed all remaining slaves in Texas on June 19, 1865. This day is an opportunity for people to celebrate freedom and equal rights in the United States.
Celebrate this day for those who were freed during a dark time history. This is also a reminder that all people should be free. Be mindful of those who lived under the oppression of slavery in the United States and elsewhere.
