It’s that time of year which feels like a fresh start, a break from the hot, humid, and sometime miserable summer days. The excitement that comes with the many fun, outdoor events, like crafts shows and festivals. Often accompanied with lots of fattening but delicious foods.(foods that I really don’t need like funnel cakes and caramel apples.) Finally it is back to a consistent schedule with kids in school, and employees back from vacations. This always helps to bring back a little consistency and normality to life again.
For my industry, it is the start of a busy season. We get ready for football trophies, Parent t shirts, banners, cold weather spirit wear,
like hoodies, and long sleeve t shirts. Many small to large businesses begin gearing up for end of the year thank you gifts. Successful Companies recognize the importance of marketing through items like calendars and hundreds of other promotional
products. To customers, gifts and promotional products say what we often forget to say…… We appreciate you.
Schools begin presenting awards to students and name tags for teachers and other staff members. Yes busy is always a good thing when you are in business large or small.
And wow did someone really just say we are less than 90 days away from Christmas?
I can hardly wait; truly it is my favorite season. Besides the gifts, last minute shopping, being with family, tons of food, parties, it is a special time of year that brings me back to why I am really here; brings my focus full circle to Who is the real provider for all I have been blessed with. Be filled with blessings that are both monetary as well as good health, wonderful family and great
So be excited, be productive, be thankful for all the blessings we tend to overlook in this busy life we live in today.
