I was thrilled that the Charlie Brown Thanksgiving special was on TV a few days ago. Thrilled, and surprised. I didn't think they allowed words such as "The Lord" and "faith" on channels other than BYUTV. It gave me a little glimmer of hope that perhaps there were some out there who were still celebrating Thursday, not Friday.
I will not be buying anything on Friday. I will be spending the day with my family (and if they want to go shopping, I will gladly go with them, because it is about spending time with them, after all). I just won't be getting out my wallet.
Hey, I've got a great idea. Why don't we all spend Friday making art together instead of shopping? That fits in perfectly with one of my goals this year: Be more of a PRODUCER and less of a CONSUMER.
Yes, I like it. Thursday for giving thanks and reflecting on our abundance, and Friday for making art. What do you think?
