The Simple Truths of Thanksgiving
I was talking with Dan Green, author of Finish Strong, at a bagel shop a couple months ago with some friends. We were talking about fun ideas for birthdays, and Dan talked about Truthday. Dan's idea is for you, on your birthday, to have special permission on your birthday to tell the truth the whole day without retaliation. You can imagine the kind of trouble you can get into with a whole day of nothing but the truth! However, the bright side of Truthday is that, when you see someone who has made a positive impact in your life, you have the chance to thank them for all that they are to you. You have an open invitation to slow down and say, "thank you".
I guess, in that respect, Thanksgiving is like Truthday. We get busy sometimes, so much so that we go far too long without saying thank you to the people in our lives. Thanksgiving gives us the rare opportunity to slow down and count our blessings. Take some time today to appreciate the people in your life, whether he or she is an acquaintance like the mail carrier, or someone very close, like your spouse. And, to show you how much we appreciate you all, here is a video perfect for today:
Another way that we would like to thank you is by announcing our biggest sale of the year.
