My last post was about one of my “Humbling Halloween” experiences. I thought best not to follow suit on the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday.
I recognize that the newspapers, news stations, news blogs, etc. are in the business of selling headlines, and headlines with bad news for some reason tend to sell more than headlines with good news. Or so I’ve been told. I came across a quote while spending some of my valuable time on facebook just yesterday, it was from a friend of mine back in my high school days, and if I can recall it, the quote was from her dad, that went something like, “Call me when the news is good”. I could go on, but I think we could all agree, we could all stand a little more “good” news in our world.
Let’s try something. take a moment, hit the comment button and share one thing, just one little thing that you are thankful for. Anything. Maybe 2 things. Heck, maybe tonight, just before you fall asleep, you’ll think of several things. Whenever, wherever it hits you, get to your computer, get online, come to the Blog, hit the comment button and share.
And for those of you who tell me “I read your blog, but just didn’t want to share a comment on the blog, so I’ll just tell you…..”, this time, hit the comment button and share.
My hope is that in our own small way, in this season of Thanks, we can overcome all the static, with some genuine good news, some celebration, some gratitude.
In advance, I thank you.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday, and for heaven’s sake….have fun…..Fred
