Good Morning Everyone!

Up at the crack of dawn, like me?

Perhaps so!

If yes, I’m sure it is because you are getting your big turkey ready to put in the oven.

As for myself and my hubby – we are off the hook this year for cooking – I say, yippee!

Something we are thankful for is a day of relaxing. It is nice to have a year off hosting, but I am going to miss Mom’s special meat pie she always brings to our side of the family as an addition to our buffet table, and Steve’s Mom’s amazing desserts – She always makes an impressive selection. Her desserts could be featured in the finest of cooking magazines – seriously.

I am thankful for so much – the list is endless. But if I were to try to sum it up  – it would be that I’m thankful for the people in our lives that understand the meaning of sharing, caring, supporting, loving, and appreciating each other.

I remember when I started my first official corporate job. I was 15, going on 16 years old. I didn’t have my license yet when I interviewed so my high school business teacher drove me there for the interview day.

The position I obtained was supporting a high level administrative assistant by the name of Joan. I remember as we walked the halls together on my first day, every single person that walked by us would say hello to Joan and “thanked her” for a task she did recently as part of her position.

I distinctly remember the polite way people treated her, and the way she treated them. For some reason, this memory came to be today. I think it is a good reminder of how we should be every day. She set a good example for me at that time in my life. I truly remember thinking, “Wow, everyone is thanking her – how nice.”

And I can’t end this quick post without specifically saying thank you to my small business supporters – To the ones who shoot out a quick email saying thank you to me at times for something related to my small business, like a workshop they attended, etc. I appreciate hearing those words very much.

Also, to the ones who have complimented my projects and attempts at trying something new related to my small business, thank you. To the ones who have offered to assist or give their own ideas on my plant related endeavors – thanks! And to the ones attending my workshops regularly – a big huge thank you.

My new motto lately is using the words, “Let’s Make It Together”, because this is how I feel – making inspiration together, making decor together, and making it special together. This is what it is all about here at Container Crazy CT.

Enjoy your day,

Cathy Testa
