You Said It, Dec. 1, 2013
In last week’s edition of You Said It, we invited readers to share what they were thankful for this holiday season. Here are some of those responses:
I am thankful for my loving, caring, considerate and respectful husband of 28 years. We met on a blind date — the best blind date ever! He is my rock. I couldn’t live without him.
I am thankful for all of the wonderful business owners who have a choice and don’t open on the holiday, so that their employees are allowed to have a wonderful family day on Thanksgiving.
I am profoundly grateful that I am not the dog tied up in my neighbor’s yard.
At 75 I am blessed to still be active, fairly mobile and usually coherent. While I know that the sand in the hourglass of my life still trickles down through the tiny opening at the same rate it did 50 years ago, it is probably good that I don’t know how many more times the capsule will be turned over.
The Schumann Singers give thanks to and for the person who left us a most generous anonymous gift last Friday evening after our concert. We greatly appreciate the gift and the donor.
A big thank you to Gabe at Red Rock Archery in Clifton for helping me rebuild my strength so I could once again enjoy my passion — bowhunting for elk. I didn’t get an elk this season, but I relished many special moments that are only possible when you’re hunting.
To the two nice ladies who helped me through the line at the Food Bank and made sure I had a chair to sit on: Your kind thoughtfulness was very much appreciated. There are truly good people left in Mesa County. Thank you again.
On a recent Sunday, my daughter and two grandchildren, who were visiting from Colorado Springs, paid a visit to Bananas Fun Park to keep the kids entertained. Things were a bit strained, and Butch made it a great day for the kids. Grandma just wanted to say a big thank you.
I recently took our missionaries to breakfast at Pufferbelly. We were waiting for our meal and the hostess came over and said that a customer was paying for our breakfast. I am thankful for kind-hearted people who reach out to others. You have the true spirit of Thanksgiving and the Christmas season.
My husband and I would like to thank Donna (I saw your name tag) for buying our lunch last Saturday at Cafe Rio. We had a great lunch, and you were so nice and friendly. Happy Thanksgiving.
Thank you, Daily Sentinel, for letting us see the airport board members. I was actually glad to see such accomplished local leaders overseeing things. It gives me hope that they will do what is necessary and right to keep the airport moving forward.
