Everyone's so hyped up about the day after Thanksgiving to get up early and go shopping. They seem to forget about Thanksgiving and what it means. Just so they can get that one item that every one is crazy about. Stores are weird. There were Halloween items out along with Christmas items. Now, pretty soon you will see Valentine's candy, cards everywhere. I just wish we could enjoy the holidays as they come. Christmas is a very special day. Let's give thanks today for everything we have and pray for those who don't. We live in a country that is wonderful, freedom of speech, we live where we want to, our soldiers every day see death, hunger, destruction, and yet they still are over there protecting us. This year, let's give thanks for our men and women who are away from their families on this day, pray for each of them. Give thanks that we didn't get the effects of Hurricane Sandy like the poor residents along the East Coast. Pray for them, not what you can get on Black Friday.
