Why do we wish away our days? We circle an event on our calendar hoping each day in between goes by quickly so that we can finally get to the day we’ve been waiting for. Don’t get me wrong, I love to have something fun to look forward to, but in doing so, we can’t forget about the days in between. Each day is a gift, and too often we take that for granted.
This time of year, we all point our attention to Christmas. It’s hard not to. Christmas displays are up in the stores, our neighborhoods are quickly lighting up with decorations, the music has already started playing on the radio stations, and companies are vying for our dollars to be spent at their stores with pre-Christmas sales.
In all this hype over Christmas, we are all looking past Thanksgiving. Christmas just happens to be my favorite holiday. I truly enjoy the entire Christmas season. But what I don’t enjoy is when Thanksgiving simply gets lost in the Christmas hustle and bustle, becoming more of a gateway to the Holiday Season.
Thanksgiving really is the perfect holiday to precede Christmas. We gather as families to count our blessings, and to remember what is most important in life; the people around us that day, our family.
Who and what we choose to give thanks for are the things we need to remember most as we go into the Christmas season. Thanksgiving, in a way, prepares us, or reminds us that the people in our lives are a gift, and that each day should not be taken for granted or looked past.
All of us at Gehman Design Remodeling would like to thank our customers for choosing us to help make your home a more comfortable place for you to live. We will never take you for granted, and we are truly thankful that you gave us the opportunity to serve you.
So, enjoy the Thanksgiving season. Thanksgiving is a special time, and much more than just pre-Christmas.
