{11•27 gratitudinous}

Are you sick of all of the sale emails yet?

After not checking all weekend, I think I had a hundred and forty emails (granted, over three email accounts) from this holiday weekend. I like to get a bargain as much as anyone, but I’m over the ninety store emails each from Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and whatever we’re supposed to be doing on Tuesday and Wednesday.

But like most of us, I’m ever so grateful for the convenience of online shopping… For people who don’t leave the house, for hobbyists looking for something odd and rare, for all the little things you don’t really need from eBay… it’s a little odd thing to include on our gratitude list, but it’s there.

a ‘buy’ button,
gives a burst of feeling…
a flimsy sort of therapy,
that rush
