I am really starting to deplore the holidays. Now before anyone gets mad at me let me explain. As early as August We started seeing marketing from the big retailers about Christmas and their sales. Sitting here tonight watching a movie with the wife and the network comes on and says that in two weeks they will start running 24 hr Christmas / holiday movies. I am all for Christmas and what it means but it seems that this holiday has lost it's meaning. Now I'm not getting political here, and I will explain further. It seem that anymore it's all about money and the amount they ( retailers ans manufacturers) do or don't make. I realize the economy is dependent on these sales and that is a great thing.
I have three wonderful grandchildren ( currently) and sometimes I wonder if their lives are going to be money driven or life driven with family and loving the life we have. I see the world changing every day and I pray that the way we used to live is the way we should live.
I think we need to go back to having seasons and the holidays that go with the seasons. Okay enough of the rant. Thanks for letting me vent. Hope you all have a safe and enjoyable rest of the weekend. To all those who are or have served and have family and friends serving in the military, including our friends to the north in Canada, Thank You and please thank them for us here at our home for serving, guarding and sacrificing like they do. May God Bless Them All.
