Today I am grateful that funds are tight this month. I know that sounds crazy, but I am actually sitting here relieved that I am in no way tempted to spend money we don’t have for things we don’t need. I am glad to not be wondering if I should run out and try to face the crowds during all of the Black Friday sales.
I have in the past fought the crowds and stood in line in order to get the deals. This year, I won’t be there and I really don’t care. I will be spending my day putting up our Christmas tree and enjoying some family time with my boys. I might make a batch or two of playdough for the nursery kids on Sunday. I’ll enjoy some leftovers and maybe play some games or watch a movie or two. It sounds so heavenly and not so rushed and frantic.
Maybe I am just tired. I have been sick the past few days. But a peaceful day at home sounds wonderful to me. And for that I am thankful.
What are you thankful for today?
