Today’s post is going to be a quick one. We’re watching the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade. Well, most of us are. For the first Thanksgiving in more than 15 years, my wife isn’t around. She got the call to be deployed to New Mexico and getting people their medicine is important. Also, she’s be back in time for Christmas.
Even though things are a little different this year, there’s a lot to be thankful for. We can do so many things that we couldn’t do last year. With everyone, even kids, having some level of vaccination, we can get together with family, some of who I haven’t seen since Christmas 2019 – almost two years ago.
So, I give thanks that we have our health. Our wealth has no doubt helped with that. Beyond that, we’re doing about as good as we ever have. Sure, we have plenty of little moments of hiccups, but that’s when it’s good to stop and appreciate the big picture.
Finally, I’m thankful for you, readers. I’ll be back with fresh content next week.
P.S. A lot of people in the personal finance have been glorifying not spending money on Black Friday deals. I say it is best to take advantage of the bargains that help you get the most for your money – as long as you can afford it. For example, it’s better to get a year of Hulu for $12 now than it is to pay $6 or $7 a month later. (That’s a deal that I bought personally, not an advertisement for Hulu.)
