A Thanksgiving Note

  November 25, 2013

Pam ClayesThanksgiving has been my favorite holiday since I evolved beyond footed pajamas.  Turkey, stuffing, cranberry sauce, pumpkin pie (with lots of Cool Whip), watching the big parade and of course football.  Dinner is the main event of the day, but it’s not all about the food.  It is a time to celebrate with our loved ones and give thanks for our many blessings.

I live with an illness; Multiple Sclerosis.  Despite the difficulties in my life caused by MS, I have so much to be thankful for including my husband, my loving family, our business and colleagues, those who protect and serve our great Country and my amazing friends.  At the same time, I’ve discovered that life with MS (or life with anything) is so much easier to take when I accept its absurdity and face it with laughter and a fight. It’s not from thankfulness, but acceptance and a sense of humor and awe at life’s surprises.

We, as a nation, are facing difficult days for the foreseeable future.  Perhaps now is the time to sort out exactly what it is that we cherish….and then work on preserving those things.  Let us not put those thoughts out of our minds when Thanksgiving dinner is cleared away.  Let us remain grateful for the people in our lives, simple comforts, and the good fortune to live another day.
We at Husky Portable Containment would like to wish you all a Blessed, Healthy, and Happy Thanksgiving.
