It is crazy week here. Last minute appliance repairs are keeping appliance repair companies and their technicians running full bore, and people who can't get their appliances fixed in time for the holiday running to buy new appliances or finding alternative ways to get what they need.

I am so blessed in my life - and even though I may complain - I really have nothing to complain about. I have family and friends that I love and love me. A good job that challenges me everyday and co-workers that I enjoy spending the day with. A home and good kids and a mom that is there for me through thick and thin. Who could want for more?

But there a lot of people out there that don't even have the basics - do something this coming weekend to help those in need. Donate food to your local food bank, volunteer at a shelter, spend some of your Black Friday shopping money on coats, clothes (Fred Meyer's 1/2 off sock sale it great), go through your kids' older toys and donate them to the children's hospital or Toys for Tots. There are a lot of ways to help others - do just one thing. Lots of grocery and retail stores have bins available right there to put your donations in and whatever you give will be deeply appreciated.
Above all, have a safe and happy Thanksgiving!
