Happy Thanksgiving

Every year I sit on Thanksgiving Eve, reflecting on all that I have to be thankful for in my life. First and most importantly, my incredible wife, Betty, who supports my every endeavor and project with the utmost enthusiasm and who loves me unconditionally. I can truly say that without a doubt I could not have done all I have without her. For my four children: Renee, Aimee, Cole, and Max — I am blessed that they are not only good kids, but good people. I’m thankful for good health, both my family’s and mine. I’m thankful that all our needs are met each and every day. I’m thankful for my good friends, those I have been blessed to meet and will continue to meet in the coming years. I’m also thankful for another successful year doing what I love to do the most in life. And, of course, I’m thankful for all of you, who take time to read this blog week after week and support Hocus Pocus as much as you have.

Tomorrow, as every year, I’ll be with my family at my mother in-law’s house for our traditional family Thanksgiving celebration. There will be plenty of food, as always, lots of leftovers for those great next day turkey sandwiches. Friday will be the official holiday shopping kickoff, and you can bet we’ll be here. Personally, I’ll begin the day here at about 5:30 AM based on last year’s post-Thanksgiving orders that were placed over the holiday and the day after. As I reflect back on all that I’m thankful for, I’m reminded that I shouldn’t just do it one day per year; but it’s much more important to recognize it every single day. I have a pretty good life and wouldn’t change a thing. Not a thing at all.

From all of us here at Hocus Pocus: Me, Betty, Mike, Jan, Karen, Ken, and the rest of the gang, we wish you and yours the very best of Thanksgivings!

Until next time,

  1. Paul,

    Thanks for your wonderful words of thanks…it really should remind us all that even a guy like you can appreciate all what you have…mainly your wife and kids.

    We all know that many businesses only think of the bottom line…but as a friend of yours for many years, I know you are different from the rest of typical businesses…and for that I will always be thankful!
