It’s the holiday season yet again. I can’t believe another year has passed by so quickly. It’s kind of funny. I was telling a friend just the other day as I get older the years pass by so much quicker. I always heard my parents tell me that. Of course I didn’t believe it. Now here I sit with another year to look back on and just smile.
I can be honest with you. The economy hurt everyone in our industry. I however am blessed that we have so many various offerings that we managed to not only survive the downfall, but come out stronger than ever. It got me thinking of how I am so grateful for my clients, friends and family in my life.
Thanksgiving in my family meant we would head to my grandmother’s house (Gammy) as we called her. I can still see it like it was yesterday. We would walk in and she would have my nanny (Rosa) and one of Rosa’s sisters helping her in the kitchen. Gammy who was one of the most prim and proper people I had known was cursing like a sailor. “Expletive. . . oh damn I’m sorry for cussing. . .Rosa get me the Jello Mold.” It was a tradition. The guys would be in the living room watching foot ball. The girls in the dining room or outside after making bloody marys.
There was always the family football game. . which clearly if you know me at all. . you would quickly realize I did not take too much part in. However, it was about 20 of us and it was something to look forward to every year.
When Gammy passed some years ago the family just opted to stay with their immediate families and there went that tradition. Now that it’s really just me and my mother as my little brother lives away, Thanksgiving is often spent on what I like to call the junket. That consists of stopping in at friends and maybe eating or just having a drink. I so long for those days of family years ago.
The holidays are for remembering the people you care about and that is what I do every year. I have to thank you as well. You have been so kind to keep us working and you have made my radio show a huge success. So from my family to yours, Happy Holidays and enjoy a safe and food and fun filled Thanksgiving my dear friends.
Remember to keep up with us in a few different ways.
