Thanksgiving is here, the one holiday we celebrate and gather as families and friends to give thanks.
It is that simple.
We all know this year is different. And truly, I am weary. We all are.
What we probably thought would be a sprint has turned into an ultra marathon.
I could stay in that place of discouragement, but I have lived there before for far too long.
Instead, I am choosing to give thanks.
I could list a thousand things I am thankful for. Here are just a few:
I am thankful for my husband of 39 years who is a rock.
Kids and grandkids who never fail to bring me joy (even in the tantrums).
My wonderful Treadlettes - you are truly the heart of Treadle. (Thank you Mary Daley for your vision.)
Beautiful fall weather and time in the outdoors to restore my soul.
In addition, I am thankful for your generosity.
Treadle has been able to get over 25,000 masks into the community. The store has remained open. Yes, some things are hard to find, others almost impossible. It will get better.
We are currently collecting masks for these organizations in need:
Treadle will continue to provide mask kits free of charge for anyone willing to sew for those in need.
“And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Galatians 6:9
Thank you for your continued support of each and every small, local business.
