In Your Words: "I'm Thankful For..."


It's More Than Turkey and Pumpkin Pie


Many people look forward to Thanksgiving dinner all year long. After all, whether you like classic turkey and broccoli casserole, or you’re looking forward to a deep fried turkey and new pie recipe, there’s bound to be something on the table for everyone. But it’s not just about the pumpkin pie-- Thanksgiving is a special day to give thanks for all your blessings. Folks throughout Williamson shared what they’re grateful for.


Thankful for Opportunities and Family


Tara Ellis, owner of Legacy Elite All Stars and Tumbling is thankful for everyone who stands by her. “I’m thankful for my parents, and my husband, who love me unconditionally, and my friends who support me,” she says. “As well as the opportunity of owning my own business, and coaching the sport I love.”


Tonya Cool owner of Reflections Salon and Spa gives her thanks to God, for the chance to slow down a little bit. Tonya says, “I’m thankful for God’s never failing love and protection. I’m thankful for this year to slow down a little, and enjoy being home with my husband and my little fur babies.”


“I’m thankful for everything God has given me,” says Tiffany Cline-Blackburn of CT Blackburn Travel. “The highs and the lows, the blessings and the lessons, the setbacks and the comebacks, but most importantly, I’m thankful for my family.”


Shelby Porter gives her thanks to those who have made sacrifices. “I am thankful for the men and women who dedicate their lives to serve our country,” she says.


For many, Thanksgiving celebrations this year will look different, but 2020 is a year when we could all stand to look around and appreciate all the good in our lives.


From our families to yours, Happy Thanksgiving.
