In all the holiday festivities, Thanksgiving seems to get lost in the shuffle sometimes. To be honest, this is my family's favorite holiday celebration. It is the one day, when we all come together as a family, sit down at the dinner table and share some precious time out of our busy lives. No phones ringing, no orders to fill, just a day to be together and of course eat some turkey. Goodness knows that our Thanksgiving table will seem empty this year, but in spite of the huge loss we feel, we know that we have an awful lot to be thankful for.
As I sit here thinking about the events of this year, thinking about things I'm thankful for, my list is long:
My dearest, closest friends, I could not have survived this year without their love, comfort and support. They have provided a shelter from the storms of life over and over. My words are so inadequate to thank them for all they have done and continue to do for me and my family. I'm thankful and honored to call them my friends, but they are more than that to me, they are my family.
My sister, Carla, she seems to think I'm the strong one and I would have to disagree. It takes both of us to forge ahead, taking care of our brother Mark and the house and the businesses and all the things that life throws our way everyday. It takes us both. I'm thankful she is my sister.
My Mom, even though she is not here, she and Dad will always be here, in our hearts. We are who we are today because of them. Mom in particular was strong and determined, some see this as being hard-headed (thank goodness I didn't inherit that trait!) but she was also kind and compassionate. I hope that both Carla and I are a good mix of all that they were. I'm thankful and blessed that they are my parents.
My Career, I realize everyday how lucky I am to be doing what I do. How many people in this world go to work everyday, hating their job....millions....I use to be one of them until I got the opportunity to open Blue Meridian. Yes, it's not the first location most would choose to open a dive store...but it works for me. I'm Kentucky born and raised and this is where I belong and I can't imagine not being where I am. We are soooooo very blessed, we get to introduce hundreds of people each year to the thrill of their lifetime. We change peoples lives every time we take them underwater. I'm thankful I own a dive store in Kentucky.
My extended diving family, what a blessing. People walk in the store day in and day out, some you never see again and others, they capture your heart and over the years this magnificent group of people forms. They are not just customers, they are dive buddies, they are breaths of fresh air, they are friends. We are thrilled when they drop in and wonder about them when we haven't heard from them in a while. We share in their joys and sorrows as they do ours. We are excited when they are going diving with us and we pester them the rest of the time to try and get them in the water. I'm thankful for all my dive buddy friends, old and new, in my diving family.
There are so many things I could list, but I only have so much web space! My prayer for you and your family is that no matter what has come your way this year, that you know through the good and bad that life may bring you, you have friends here at Blue Meridian. May your blessings be many and may your Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays fill your heart and your house with peace and happiness.
With much love,
