Get Ready, Get Set...SHOP!


It's Black Friday! The day all the retailers plan on us consumers to do our part to help make their numbers so they can stay in business yet another year. Yes. believe it or not, most retailers count on this day (and the remainder of the year) to help get them in the black (hence "Black Friday".)
I know I did my share! Up at 4:30 and on to 11 stores. I found everything I was looking for. In the midst of all of the hustle and bustle, long lines and crowds, cell phones going off and texting all over, Christmas carols and jingling hats, I found this adorable little boy, totally focused on his letter to Santa. It was a moment of reflection for me. I hope this little guy (and all the other boys and girls just like him) get what they want from Santa this year.
Go to the Angel Tree in your mall and pick up a name of some deserving child. Make his/her Christmas brighter.
