A Thanksgiving Message

November 22, 2011

The “First Thanksgiving” was celebrated by early Americans to thank God for guiding them safely to the New World. The first feast lasted three days, providing enough food for 13 pilgrims and 90 Indians. Then in 1863, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of Thanksgiving which has become a popular holiday in the United States.

Everyone has a holiday they enjoy the most. I personally love Thanksgiving for a number of reasons. With a college age son, the holiday means more because our family is reunited. His presence in the house makes me feel complete. With most of my extended family living outside of New York, it provides a chance to have other loved ones at our table. As a special event planner, it gives me the chance to create, cook and serve a delicious meal on a table adorned with my grandparent’s china and pink roses.

As a woman entrepreneur, it gives me an opportunity to be grateful for my work and the amazing women I represent, see and promote throughout the year. Just like Thanksgiving, event days are my favorite days because different women in various regions around the state gather around tables to share lessons with others. Just like at my own dining room table, the conversation is warm, inviting and supportive.

Today’s blog is to thank all the women who have been part of Women TIES this year. Whether you read our blog, attended an event or have been a member for a month or six years, your presence in this organization is something I appreciate. I hope you take time to thank the clients, vendors, staff and supportive women who have helped you and your business this year.

From my home to yours, I wish you a beautiful holiday. You will be remembered as I sit down and count my blessings. Thank you for living out the Women TIES mission and believing in the buying and selling power of women.
