A Thankful Season
This is the most wonderful time of the year: Pies, desserts, and sweet treats are constantly baking in the kitchen. Holiday decorations and Christmas lights line the streets. Temperatures continue to drop, and all is merry and bright! Many people love to see their favorite holiday movies rolling on television or to hear holiday music playing in the stores. And I don’t know about you, but during the holidays, I have turkey and ham on my mind. But there are other things that make this time special. The holidays bring everyone together to celebrate the past year, and it’s such a joy to be together. There is nothing better than quality time spent with family and loved ones. Also, around the holiday season, I notice a sense of additional kindness and cheer coming from everyone I run into — whether I know them or not. It’s great to head out to the grocery store, or even a doctor’s appointment, and to be surrounded by strangers who are cheerful and joyous — the happiness is contagious!
However, most importantly, I enjoy the holiday season because it’s a time to be thankful! After another difficult year for the vast majority of us — due to struggles stemming from COVID-19 — it’s important that we take time to appreciate the many blessings in our lives: family, health, food, water, shelter, and more. It’s so easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of our daily lives or to pay too much attention to the news and only focus on the negatives in our world.
Unfortunately, not focusing on good things can cause us to take certain blessings for granted. For me, I’m grateful for the love and support of my family and friends, my health, the opportunity to do what I love each and every day, my ability to continue to work, and the little things in life that put a smile on my face. I’m also thankful for you, my loyal customers. Without you, AvaAir would not exist, because you keep us running. Thank you for believing in us and for trusting our team. If I’m sending them out to you, it’s because I also trust them; I’d even send them out to my parents’ house!
As a short reminder, as the end of the year approaches, don’t forget to change out the batteries in your smoke detectors, carbon monoxide detectors, and to test that they function properly. Also, as a safety precaution — and so Santa can make it down safely without dirtying his nice red suit — have your chimneys cleaned. We don’t offer this service, but we can provide you with some referrals. We are here for anything you need.
From my family and the AvaAir family to you and yours, happy Thanksgiving and happy holidays!
