I want to go on record here in my blog that I worked my first Black Thursday sale at Walmart and came out totally unscathed.....glory to GOD !
I was told on Wednesday to dress warm for Thursday, because I would be working the parking lot, directing cars around to the side door where they could pick up their big items.
When I came in Thursday afternoon, I was met by another employee, telling me that I was assigned to the associates working movies/games INSIDE.
Well, I ALMOST went and changed out of my fleece tights and undershirt that I was wearing, but I am so glad that I decided to wait. The games and movies were set up in front of the long meat coolers, and it was COLD over there. Thankfully, only my little tushy felt the cold when I would prop myself on the edge of a cooler. The standing on my feet for hour after hour was the only rough part of the evening........mostly I felt wasted. I had to be the bad guy that told people they were at the exit of the movie area, and that they had to go around to the other end if they wanted to shop games and movies.
I was happy when the time came for me to start stocking shelves again.
On the Thanksgiving side of things, I wound up having two different meals provided by friends and family. I got to talk to my daughter and my brother and brother-in-law. It was a blessed day, all in all.
I apologize to those who follow this blog for quilty goodness......I'm afraid there's not much of that going on right now. Hopefully, more in the future !
I hope you're stuffed, blessed, and happy this weekend. Enjoy your family time and God's goodness, and be sure to take time to be thankful.
" Do you not know?
Have you not heard???
The LORD is the everlasting GOD,
the Creator of the ends of the earth.
He will not grow tired or weary,
and His understanding no one can fathom.
He gives strength to the weary,
and increases the power of the weak.
Even youths grow tired and weary,
and young men stumble and fall;
but those who hope in the LORD
will renew their strength.
They will soar on wings like eagles;
they will run and not grow weary,
they will walk and not be faint." Isaiah 40:28-31
"The Sovereign LORD has given me an instructed tongue, to know the word that sustains the weary.
He wakens me morning by morning, wakens my ear to listen like one being taught." Isaish 50:4
