Hello good people, it’s Cyber Monday. The big day for online shopping during this holiday season. This year everyday has been “Cyber Monday” considering many folks are taking it safe and avoiding the malls and shops due to the Coronavirus. No matter how you are shopping I hope you get a great deal or two.
And if you aren’t shopping have a great day and carry on.
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.
Thanksgiving in America is a time for families of all types and friends of all types coming together to give gratitude for the things they have in this life. Granted it has a problematic past when you look at it with 21st century eyes and sensibility.
I will admit a lot has happened since that first Thanksgiving celebration that has not been good. However, I believe it can be a positive holiday for people where you can remember the past but forge a new future. In the days we live in being grateful is important.
For those celebrating where they are not fully accepted for one reason or another, I hear you and you have my support. Some folks cannot go home because they have been kicked out for living their truth on their own terms. LGBTQ folks especially. May your future be one of reconciliation and restoration.
As you observe and celebrate remember those who have been lost due to illness, violence, racism, and the Coronavirus. Many tables will have spaces where loved ones a year ago were celebrating. Much has changed since 2019 and I understand that fully.
Be good to one another. Seek peace and mercy as we head into this holiday season. lean on one another and be kind. Love to you all good people. Remember a big table is better than a small one.
I will do my best to lighten things up here on the blog coming up. But as in anything life will have its say which influences what you see here.
Some people need the care and comfort of others in times of need or distress. Whether it be sickness, incarceration, homelessness, and situations where people need assistance, we are all charged with acting. I believe that people have a connection that requires us to act on behalf of our higher power to give hope and grace.
In the season we are in, charity is needed more than ever but with COVID-19 added to the mix people need help even more. So much of what we are seeing is people losing their jobs, a change in the routines in life, and loss of life.
We must be about the work of making our world at this time the best it can be. It is not easy but when everyone comes together it can be something special.
My friends in this holiday season do not forget about others who need a hand. We have a responsibility to care for the least of these because when we do that we can make this mean world a better place.
In days like we are all going through coming together in community is important. Also being sure we take care of business so that the world keeps turning. There can be a balance in where taking care of one another can mean providing for our loved ones and making sure we are making things happen.
Being responsible for what we have been given is being good stewards. Everyone has a role to play in keeping things going. Multiplying is always better than dividing unless dividing means sharing the load. Making one turn into two. Two into four and so on and so on. There is magic in that sort of thing.
Supporting one another is a good thing. Bringing people to the table is great. Creating moments that can sustain and maintain is awesome. Continue to do good things because we need more good, now more than ever.
Keeping things going is good for everyone and being creative in how you do it is a bonus. Don’t you agree?
Dear friends, the Coronavirus is still causing havoc in our communities and around the world. Be safe and wear your masks because it will save your life and the lives of others. Be well and take care good people.
