November…There is Always Something to Be Thankful For

November…There is Always Something to Be Thankful For

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. – John Kennedy

We’ve all been waiting for this time of year.  As we enter into the Thanksgiving season, we take this chance to become reflective in our lives.  We enjoy the cooling down of temperatures, restocking the firewood for our winter warmth and planning family gatherings with our loved ones. Most importantly, we get to reconnect and examine our sense of gratitude that especially becomes prevalent during this season.
This is also a time of year when we come together to give thanks and share our abundance to help one another.  The Lake Cities community comes together to show compassion and unity with many traditions.  The Spirit of Christmas is one local tradition that has a far reaching effect. From a canned food drive to feed the hungry and a fundraiser to provide gifts for children of families in need, Lake Cities residents and businesses always support this great charity.  Many local churches come together to support the needy as well as to show appreciation for our public servants.  Local businesses rally around those in need with annual events such as, “Coats for Kids Ride” and a “BBQ, Jeeps and Toy Drive” to support the U.S. Marine Corps “Toys for Tots” drive.

Living in a close-knit community such as Lake Cities is a blessing in itself.  I have observed the resilient and charitable spirit of the Lake Cities community firsthand, since I became involved last November.  Being a smaller community gives us the advantage of personally knowing and feeling connected to our community and its needs.  

Lastly, Murray Media Group would like to share our thanks and appreciation to Lake Cities for welcoming us into this amazing community.  We wish you and your family a peaceful and harmonious Thanksgiving holiday season.  We also wish blessings on each and every local business for prosperity and the ability to continue to bless others.
