My Thanksgiving Wish for You

November 23, 2014

Family and Friends. Turkey and football. Jingle Bells and Oh Holy Night. The scent of a Christmas tree. Smiles and laughter.

I hope I am the first to wish you a Happy Holiday Season! Starting with

Happy Thanksgiving!

Here are some thoughts as we go into the season I’d like to share with you.


I am thankful for Stefanie Wargala, Griff’s finance, and Erin Burris, Drew’s wife. They are great additions to our family!!

I am grateful for My Marilyn and our boys; My brother & sister and their families.  We need to tell our families how much we love them.

I am asking God to give a kiss to the loved ones we no longer see.

I am grateful I have a spiritual life.

I am thankful for my friends. There aren’t enough words to express my love and devotion to the true friends in my life. I wish health for you in our journey through time.

I am grateful for the opportunity to work. I cannot imagine sitting down. There are just too many people yet to meet.

I am thankful for the friends I have made through my work, my clients and associates. I see you more than my family.

I am thankful that I need a moment when they play TAPS for a soldier. Please say ‘thank you’ to our older veterans too.

I am thankful I can vote.

I am thankful for the people who believe in me and for those who along the way gave me a chance with their confidence and trust.

I’m glad there are those of us who still believe we should say “Merry Christmas”.

I am grateful when you stand up for what is right. Not just soldiers and first responders. Ordinary folks like us who will not allow an injustice to go unchecked.

Most of all, I am thankful for you. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving, Merry Christmas and a Happy Holiday Season.
