Thanksgiving flowers and what I am Thankful for…

Hello Cowboy Flowers Fans,
I have already posted the Thanksgiving pictures on my blog, so here is what I am thankful for.
I am thankful for my family, from my dad who served on the USS Bunkerhill during WW2, where they were kami kazied twice in 30 seconds. 396 sailors died in this attack, and 264 wounded. My dad was spared, I am thankful for that.

I am thankful for all the men and women who have, are, and will serve to keep this great country free.

I am thankful for my family,  my husband Jeff, who stands by me through thick and thin. He thinks my ideas are a little out there sometimes, but he gives me the space to try.

 

I am thankful for Shannon, my daughter, who gave me Morgan, the best granddaughter a grandma cold have.  She is so sweet and innocent, and such a happy kid. And my son, Joe, who has turned out to be an exceptional young man.

I am thankful for my family in PA., especially my Mom. She taught me respect for my elders, work ethics, and family values. At 88 she is still going strong.

I am thankful for a roof over my head, and a garden to grow my own food, and for the many friends who have encouraged to me to dig down deep inside and let the inner child out.

So on this Thanksgiving holiday, I encourage all of you to stop and reflect on the good things in your life, the things that are free, the things that make you happy.  Forget about the money and the black Friday at all the big corporate stores.

Shop local and support your small local brick and mortar businesses.  This keeps money in your community, and hopefully that small business open to see another holiday.

I appreciate your business more than you can imagine.  It’s an honor for me to create beautiful floral designs for you.  My only regret is that summer is over and all the locally grown flowers are done for the season, but I get beautiful flowers from the next best source and can pass along the beauty to you.

From my family to yours, I wish you a Happy, safe, and Healthy Thanksgiving.  Count your blessings while you can, we only get to stay on this earth for a short while.
