"What if you woke up today with only the things you thanked God for yesterday?" (Author Unknown)The Plymouth colonists in 1621, had good reason to be thankful. Of the 102 passengers on board the Mayflower when it left England in September 1620, only about half of them survived to see the first spring. Were it not for some compassionate Native Americans, who taught the colonists how to plant and harvest corn, how to fish, and how to live off the land, these remaining colonists wouldn't have survived either. You better believe they were thankful! And in November 1621, the colonists and Wampanoag Indians shared an autumn harvest feast that we now call Thanksgiving. At this Thanksgiving season, we are are thankful for all the blessings we have received as a business. Our industrial cleaning work and our industrial flooring work has grown exponentially over the past few years. We used to say our territory was the southeastern United States. But now we've gone as far west as Utah. Yes, we are thankful and blessed for the growth of our business. But our business is more than just providing a service to another industry. Our growth means we are able to provide a paycheck and a way for another person to provide for his or her family. That is a blessing! And for that we are thankful.
