It is early morning on Black Friday. All is quiet in the house, and I find myself reflecting on my life. Black Friday, stores hope, will put them in the “black” as customers pour into their stores, stocking up on holiday gifts, and lay down cold, hard cash and credit to fill their coffers.
This year, Black Friday means something a bit different to me. I have found that this year, my Emotional Bank Account is in the black. Yay for me! I have been truly blessed by all the friends I have made since starting my journey as a writer, and a family that is so supportive of my writing career. In fact, my Emotional Bank Account is overflowing.
If you are reading this, consider yourself a friend, and I cherish you. I never thought that a vehicle such as facebook could foster anything more than virtual friends, but alas, I have accumulated “real”, dear friends, and the serendipity of it makes it all the more charming and precious.
So, as I await my family’s stirrings to wakefulness, and contemplate joining the masses outside for a crazy Black Friday shopping spree, I sit here on my couch, laptop in hand, and consider Black Friday a personal success.
I wish for all of you, as wonderful a Black Friday as I have, with Emotional Bank Accounts overflowing. I would consider it an honor to help all of YOU in that regard by being considered a friend of yours as well.
Hugs and love,
