I want to take this time to thank everyone who has made my life on this earth memorable. I want to thank all of my clients past and present. I want to thank my readers who have embraced me during this short period of me becoming a published author. It has been an amazing journey of personal and business growth for me these past few years.
I am always happy and appreciative when Thanksgiving is approaching because this wonderful holiday allows me the opportunity to thank all of you.
The pleasure of meeting so many of you whether once or hundreds of times has been incredibly rewarding and motivating. Each of you have your own place in my heart and my memories. In our conversations I have learned from each of you and for that I am grateful.
God has been so good to me in spite of some ups and some downs, and I thank Him for the lessons. I thank you for your patronage during this year and past years, and for allowing me to be of service to you.
All week I have been wishing people a “Happy Thanksgiving.” I have learned that through talking to people there are many who are going through some struggles, and the upcoming holidays may be really tough for some. Yet, during this time, all I could do was think ‘how can I wish this person a Happy Thanksgiving?’ There is no easy answer to the question,.
Some of us will have a Happy Thanksgiving, and some of us will not. And the more I think of it, some of them are my clients and some are friends.
I received a phone call on last Sunday from my sister who informed me that a dear friend who lives in her city had gone to bed on Saturday night and never woke up. His wife, of course, is devastated. I was stunned. Life is so short. I thought about what I could possibly say to encourage her. I called and left a message on her phone and I am not really sure what I said. However, I pray that whatever message I left was an encouragement to her during her great loss.
We will all, at some point, be forced to face loss and pain. I can tell you that some holidays will be happier than others. This is life, and there’s nothing that I or anyone else can do to change that. But as we head into this Thanksgiving Holiday, I urge you all to look around you and be thankful for what you do have, be thankful for those that love you and those that you love.
Chances are, you will find so many things to be to be thankful for. Please don’t take those things for granted.
