Thanksgiving Thoughts

So we’re gonna get real for a second here…

This Thanksgiving, I noticed an increase of people sharing on social media what they are thankful for.  I do not discourage this.  However, I wonder how many of these people give thanks every day?!

It was also impossible to avoid the Black Friday and Cyber Monday advertisements.  I received over 150 advertiser emails regarding sales.  I do not understand how a day meant for giving thanks has become associated with some of the busiest shopping days of the year.  Wish there wasn’t such confusion about wants vs. needs and that we could give retailer’s employees a little bit more time with their families…

This is a design/lifestyle blog, so I as I jump back into this, I will be sharing different material items that I’ve purchased, wish I could purchase, am inspired by, etc.  But I do not want to be misunderstood.  I am VERY thankful for everything that I have in my life, and I am thankful         every. single. day.

“Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name.” Psalm 100:4
