Happy Thanksgiving To You All!

thanksgivingI was over at Man Vs. Debt this morning, and I enjoyed watching his video post about the three things him and his wife were thankful for this year. He asked his readers to share three things they are thankful for, and my reasons, listed below, are just three of the many things I am thankful for this year. It was a wonderful year for us!

1.) I am thankful for the healthy birth of our new little man Noah. He has been a blessing and so much fun to be around.

2.) I am obviously thankful for the fact that we have become debt free in 2009. This accomplishment alone has helped our lives become less stressful and more enjoyable. It’s been a wonderful experience to say the least.

3.) I am really thankful for the people I interact with daily throughout the blogosphere. That may seem cheesy to some, but I have learned so much from the people around me—bloggers and readers alike. (READERS – I am especially thankful for you, because without you, I would not have an audience to write to.) 😉

Have a very Happy Thanksgiving, and if you have time read my post over at the Self Reliance Exchange about Black Friday:

black fridayMake Black Friday A Debt Free Friday – If you ask me, Black Friday is the worst day of the year. Add my least favorite thing to do—shopping—and you have yourself one turned-off Dad. Just show me some pajamas and the remote, and I’ll show you what contentment actually looks like. I’d even settle for watching “It’s A Wonderful Life” with my wife, but don’t tell her—she’ll be skipping the marketing festivities as well…continue reading.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you! I’m thankful to my blog friends as well (that includes you!)

    I am with ya, I stay far-far away from stores on Black Friday. I went one time and one time only 4 years ago and some old lady YELLED at me for something so innocent and right then I thought, “this day brings out the worst in people.” I hate it. I couldn’t believe she treated another person the way she did for something so trivial and I swore I’d never go out again. There’s no sale so good that I want to deal with that crap. NO way!

    My mom asked me to go get her some things from black friday sales and im like no way lol. I am determined NOT to shop on this day! It used to be an exciting time for us both BUT now I hate it. I remember waiting up at some 3am at best buy for tv’s once. I look back on that day as i flip though the stations on my lil 27 inch that someone gave to me after trying to sell stuff in order to keep my head above water, like was it really that serious? I am so grateful to be becoming debt free. If any one ever wants to learn about contentment just join an fpu class and start becoming debt free.

    best biblical lesson anyone could ever learn!

    I have not ever been to a black Friday sale…When do we get to see an updated picture of the little Man? I am thankful for the ability to have health, wisdom and strength. 2009 has been a great year of increase for my family and I and this single mom is looking for so much more!

    Thank you ladies for stopping by!

    KelsaLynn – Thank you very much! 😉 You are right about crazies! People willing to slice you over a product…makes no sense to me at all!

    Mikki – Mikki, I hear ya girl! I used to want to do the same thing over some video game consoles and expensive games. Now I just spend my time blogging, and creating more things for me to make money doing. Time well spent!

    Tina I’ve been a couple of times but being a guy, you know it didn’t take much for me to realize…”screw this”! LOL You are a very inspirational single mom Tina! Being a single parent is tough especially financially, so I have much love for single mothers and fathers out there!

    I will share some pics of my tiny little man really soon I promise. 😀
