We are 6 days away from Thanksgiving 2014. I love this holiday because of its simplicity. It’s all about tradition, family and friends. OK, it’s all about food, too!
Just the name of the day gives me pause. I can’t hear the word Thanksgiving without thinking of all of the things in my life I am grateful for. Is life perfect? No! Could it be better? Yes! Are we ever satisfied with the status quo? No!
However, next Thursday when I am gathered with my family, I will be thankful for their love and support. When we arrive and there are hugs and kisses waiting, I will be thankful for the gift of touch. When all of my grandchildren and great nieces and nephews continue running around, screaming, crying and laughing hysterically, I’ll be thankful that I have ears to hear them and eyes to see their joy.
When the turkey is carved and the potatoes mashed, I’ll be thankful that I can taste my sister-in-law’s culinary skills and the gift of smell – what wonderful aromas!
This time of year is a period where many of us are looking back, while at the same time looking forward. We’re taking stock of the past 11 months and planning for the next year. It can be a time of both happiness and sadness. Sadness over the things that didn’t go as planned, but hopeful that the coming year will exceed our grand expectations.
God has blessed our family with many wonderful gifts, and He has seen fit to give us some troubling times and burdens to carry. It is those burdens that make me appreciate, even more, the wonderful things He has bestowed. It is for those that I will be giving thanks on Thursday!
It is the time of year where I think of all of our clients. Without them, Multi-Craft would not exist. So, please accept our thanks for entrusting us with your projects and your visions.
