Can you believe it’s already November? Before you know it, it will be December and then 2011!!! Do you ever feel that November often gets looked over and is rushed through? We do. Think about it… once Halloween is over and the pumpkins go away, the Christmas lights and trees start to go up. Even Starbucks started using their holiday cups on November 1st! (I find it interesting that those red Starbucks cups are an indicator of the holiday season)
But because it’s November and November means Thanksgiving, we try to squeeze in some turkey and ham somewhere to check off our holiday to-do list. :P
We’ve all studied the origin of America’s first Thanksgiving festival about the Pilgrims, Plymouth Rock, the Indians and so forth, but essentially Thanksgiving was a time for the pilgrims to thank God and celebrate with their [Indian] friends.
SO, before we stuff ourselves with turkey, let’s take a moment to really stop and reflect on what we are thankful for. And there is much to be thankful for! It’s nice to know that there is a month where we are reminded to give thanks for all the Lord has done for us (because I’m sure we don’t thank Him enough in our every day lives).
For us, we are so thankful for our community of family and friends who have been a huge support and encouragement since the start up of our company. It has “officially” (as in legally on paper) only been about 2-3 months and it has been quite exciting! We realized that all our human effort is in vain without the Lord leading the way. He is constantly humbling us and He sure does work in mysterious (but AWESOME) ways! Just this week alone, we met with three new clients and the way they found out about us is always a fun and interesting one to hear!
Not only are we thankful for the amazing love from our community; we are so so so so so thankful for our incredible clients! It has been such a joy working with such inspiring people, from sweet couples who are planning their Big Day to adoring parents who are planning memorable parties for their children and from musicians and artists pursuing their passions to businessmen celebrating their hard work. The positive feedbacks we hear from them bring a smile to our face and are a true encouragement! With the wide range of events that we coordinate, we cannot thank the Lord enough for all our clients who have put their trust and faith in us! God has truly blessed and provided us with wonderful people (like you)! Thank you!
