This year is a little rough for most, some have lost family, and others cannot be together. As the saying goes. we will get through this one way or another. We will persevere. With that said, let us take a moment and be grateful. Let us show thanks and gratefulness to our front line workers that are in healthcare, without them, where would we be? Let us thank the post office and the shipping companies, without them, how could we order online and stay safe? We salute the retail and the dining businesses also.
However, I want us to thank ourselves. I want us to recognize where we were when this all started and where we are now! We are an amazing people. We are showing that despite it all, we are grateful and proud! We are not roiling over and putting our bellies in the air, saying “I am done”. No, we are going on, moving forward. We are supporting each other in ways I haven’t seen in a very long time. We are getting to know our neighbors and lending a helping hand when needed. And they, in return, the same.
As we move closet to Christmas, with black Friday tomorrow, Shop Small on Saturday, and all the other retail campaigns, remember the small business on your “Main Street”, without your sales, they may not be there for you next year. This is a hard time for small businesses, let us reach out and pull them back to safety. Let us support every single local small business. Let’s flood them with kindness, and gratefulness as we visit their stores. The items may cost more, but they are made with love, care, attention to detail, and by a person, not a company that send their product elsewhere to be mass produced.
As I small business, I too fall into the category of needing pulling back. Keep an eye out tomorrow for a Black Friday special.
Thank you all for all you do. From all of us at Lucky 7 Studios, Happy Thanksgiving!
