It seems Thanksgiving really gets lost in the shuffle.
While we should be thankful every day for our blessings, big and small, the fact that one day has been formally set aside for reflection, contemplation and thankfulness should not go unacknowledged, or considered “just another day.”
Or worse, seen as the first shopping day of the Christmas season, now that stores have started opening late on Thanksgiving Day — if they close at all.
Many farragutpress staff members wanted to express thankfulness.
Advertising manager Sherry Long said she is “thankful for a wonderful husband who is an amazing caregiver and has helped me reach seven years cancer-free. We are now enjoying the fun of our first grandchild.”
“Family, football and turkey,” tops the list for account executive Peyton Hairston III.
