It is the week for giving thanks. The natural thing to do is to give thanks for good health, jobs, healthy families, warm homes, and many other popular things to give thanks for. What about the things that we take for granted? We need the turkey grower to have turkeys to eat. The potato farmer to ultimately have mashed potatoes. The person that dehydrates the little onions to go on top of the green bean casserole. Well someone has to do it. The pumpkin grower for the pumpkin pies. The guy with the waders that rounds up the cranberries, although I don’t think they actually do it that way. The grocery store stock person that works through the night to make sure the shelves are stocked for all the other things we need for a proper Thanksgiving meal. The utility workers that make sure we have power to heat our homes and ovens. The pipeline workers that make sure that we have natural gas supply. The propane gas delivery people that make sure the tanks in the country are full. I understand that Thanksgiving is not just about the meal and all the stuff, but I thought I would list out just a few of the individuals that make a Thanksgiving meal a success.
The list goes on and on of people and events that take place every day to make our lives a little easier and warrant thanks. This is a great time of the year to give thanks for all of those individuals. If you take a little time to think, I am sure you can think of that special person, that did either there normal job or something extra to make your life a little easier.
Find something truly amazing this week that someone did for you and thank them.
Thanks for stopping by.
