Forgotten on Thanksgiving.

I just spoke with an older lady on the phone.  I wished her a Happy Thanksgiving and we proceeded with her order.

Once the order was placed she asked me, "Would you please ship my order tomorrow, I should have called yesterday, I am almost out.”

I told her, “We won’t be shipping again until Monday we are lucky enough to have both Thursday and Friday off.”

“Oh.” She said, “why is that?”

I replied, “Tomorrow is Thanksgiving and we are blessed with Friday off too.”

Then she replied, “Oh, I didn’t think Thanksgiving was tomorrow, somehow no one invited me to have dinner with them.”

I felt terrible, she was going to be alone on this day of gratitude and togetherness.

If you know of a friend that may be forgotten during this holiday season please open your hearts to those less fortunate, you will always be rewarded in friendship.

God Bless,
