Someone remarked that they needed a day between each day for resting up from the last day and to prepare for the next one. That is what today has been at my house. I got up late, but early enough to take a nap. Now I know what a Black Friday is.

I’ve got closets to sort, pictures to scan, people to see, walking to do but I haven’t even answered comments from friends like you.

I haven’t read a bloggers post, a novel, a newspaper, or my Bible; if I can’t do that, I am really being idle.

I haven’t made a friendly phone call, called “Hi” to a neighbor, wrote a chatty letter, or even combed my hair to make myself look better.

Results of a wasted day? I am so, so, So glad my salvation is based on Jesus’s grace and not my doing good. With that in mind, I am going to run right over to my blog and see who visited me there on Thanksgiving Day!

About oneta hayes

ABOUT ME Hello. To various folks I am Neat’nee, Mom, Grandma Neta, Gramma, Aunt Neta, Aunt Noni, Aunt Neno, and Aunt Neto (lots of varieties from little nieces and nephews). To some I’m more like “Didn’t you used to be my teacher?” or “Don’t I know you from someplace?” To you, perhaps, I am a Fellow Blogger. Not “fellow” like a male or a guy, but “fellow” like a companion or an adventurer. I would choose to be Grandma Blogger, and have you pull up a chair, my website before you, while I tell you of some days of yore. I have experienced life much differently than most of you. It was and is a good life. I hope to share nuggets of appreciation for those who have gone before me and those who come after me. By necessity you are among those who come after me and I will tell you of those who came before. Once upon a time in a little house on a prairie - oops, change that lest I commit plagiarism - and change that “house on the prairie” to “dugout on the prairie.” So my story begins...

    Thank you. This inherited marketing stupidity is not going to impact my day. Black Friday indeed! some have told me it follows thanksgiving….why? For believers every day is thanksgiving and black Friday was a superstition based on pagan feelings that Fridays particularly 13th were bad luck. Now we have been inundated this year to spend lots of money and buy cheap goodies cause its black Friday. Who says?

      I agree with you, but the point of my blog was that I had done nothing to brighten my day. My days are much happier if I put myself out to do something for someone else. I was referring to mood rather than the traditional “sales” day.

    Dear Oneta, I hope you indeed rallied and you had a GREAT DAY. Doing days are definitely harder as we age.

    I thought Friday is black only for the businesses who were able to clear their stock from last year to make space for this year’s Christmas. For all others, it’s red.
    Now what is Cyber Monday.
