We all have a lot to be thankful for and there are times when we are in a position to really understand how fortunate we are. I was reminded of that last Friday.
The staff at C. T. Lowndes & Company prepared a Thanksgiving Dinner for the folks staying at the Ronald McDonald House in Charleston on Friday. About a dozen of the staff, plus some family members, spent the day cooking and preparing the meal. The parents staying at the house were very appreciative to be able to sit down for a few minutes, forget their problems, and enjoy a nice meal.
The families at the House are staying there because their child is very ill and in the hospital. One could feel the strain and sadness and fear in their voices as they talk about their kids and their medical issues.
It gave all of us a good feeling to be able to provide a little happiness to those folks and it was a great way to start the holiday season.
Happy Thanksgiving to all.
