Giving Thanks

Thanksgiving dinner
Thanksgiving is an annual reminder that each of us has so much for which to be grateful, no matter what obstacles, frustrations, disasters or tragedies life may throw our way.

If we are blessed--or lucky if you prefer that term--we can be grateful for the love, friendship and company of the people who matter to us. And that's just for starters, when you consider that much of the world's population can only dream of the comforts we likely take for granted on any given day: Shelter from the elements, security from those who might want to harm us, a reliable source and safe supply of food and drinking water, adequate clothes to keep us warm and dry...  As anyone who suffered through recent storms (or worse) knows, it's easy to take basic necessities and everyday comforts for granted, until they vanish even if only temporarily. Indeed, each and every comfort and blessing of modern life--and life itself--is so very fragile, and in reality merely temporary.

Perhaps if each of us were to set aside a minute or two each day to give thanks for just two or three people or things things in our lives, the world might slowly but surely begin to turn away from violence and cruelty and towards greater beauty and understanding...

Why not start today?

Wishing all of our friends, family, partners, colleagues, customers and fans a Zesty and Happy Thanksgiving,
Carolina Sauce Company, Inc.
