This week we celebrate Thanksgiving, the holiday we trample in our Halloween costumes en route to Christmas.
Indeed, more conversations this time of year center around Black Friday sales and shopping than around our annual celebration of gratitude.
But as our community and nation begin to gradually pull out of its economic doldrums, we still have plenty of reasons to be thankful.
A perfect example is set with the letter today by David Titus and Lou Reda (see below), expressing gratitude for the help Columbia County Cares has received.
This agency, like most such charitable endeavors, has been hit hard by the double-whammy of lower donations and increased demand. Yet with the help of a supportive community, they're still able to serve the less fortunate among us.
By all means: Enjoy the big Christmas sales. The nation is counting on an uptick in consumer spending to jump-start the economy. But don't forget to set a little aside to help Columbia County Cares, or United We Care in Grovetown, or the Salvation Army.
The best way to show gratitude is to share it.
