Happy Thanksgiving!

There are countless things that make up our daily lives. A few weeks ago, my Monday consisted of the following: go to work, mow the lawn, fix the refrigerator,  help with homework, volunteer for Cub Scouts; That’s a pretty full day.  It seems that each new day is busier than the last. It’s not often that we are able to take the time and reflect on our lives and be thankful for the things we have been blessed with. For me, Thanksgiving is that time.

I am thankful for lot’s of things. I have the best family – a wonderful & supportive wife and two beautiful boys. I own a house that is not upside down on its mortgage. I have reliable transportation. I own a business and enjoy the work I do and people I meet. I couldn’t ask for a better business partner.  I have my health. There are way too many things to list. The point is that I truly feel like I’m the luckiest person in the world and I appreciate all that I have – good and bad.

Thank you for being loyal customers. I appreciate each and every one of you.

Wishing you a safe and happy Thanksgiving filled with love from your family and friends.
