Giving JOYFULLY: Alternatives to Black Friday and Reducing the Stress of the Perfect Gift!

With all the stories in the news today, Black Friday, expressing the ends to which people will go towards getting that “good deal,” let’s take a serious look at the facts: Wal-Mart Employee Trampled to Death by 2008 Black Friday Shoppers   Gas money spent, at well over $3 a gallon: wasting resources. Getting up in the middle of the night: wasting your resting time. Standing in lines: wasting your emotional well being. Risking danger: just a total waste to put your life at risk. Over spending: in this economy we can’t afford to make impulse buys, a waste of your money. Solutions? When making holiday gifting decisions, think first! Think about your family and friends, the most precious resource. Save gas and stay home with them, enjoy the time you have to spend with them. Bring back the memories, or make new ones. Think about the holiday itself.  You’ve just spent a wonderful day (Thanksgiving) preparing and eating a meal gathered among those you love giving thanks for your many blessings.  Let that experience flow …

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving We return thanks to our mother, the earth, which sustains us. We return thanks to the rivers and streams, which supply us with water. We return thanks to all herbs, which furnish medicines for the cure of our diseases. We return thanks to the moon and stars, which have given to us their light when the sun was gone. We return thanks to the sun, that has looked upon the earth with a beneficent eye. Lastly, we return thanks to the Great Spirit, in Whom is embodied all goodness, and Who directs all things for the good of Her children. Iroquois
