In just a few hours, our country will celebrate Thanksgiving, a day when we remember our blessings and reconnect with friends and family.

This great holiday also lends itself to another celebration for small businesses to share with their clients, customers and vendors. Without their support and business, Thanksgiving would have a lot less “Thanks” in it.
In that spirit, I wrote this prayer for my clients to express my deep appreciation for the opportunity to work on their behalf, to help solve their media relations and other communications’ problems. Beyond that, I care for their overall well-being.
"A Thanksgiving Prayer for My Clients"
I appreciate you!!!!
I pray that your Thanksgiving is filled with fun, relaxation, and love, from family and friends. And, that you continue to enjoy good health, peace, prosperity, and great success in all of your endeavors. Also, I desire that your vendors’ and suppliers’ families and friends receive an ocean full of peace, prosperity, success, and, good health.
Thank you for turning to Harvest Reapers Communications to assist with your communications’ needs, and for believing in my boutique agency when you could have easily gone in a different direction. You are a busy professional running your own corporation, agency, consultancy, or nonprofit, and your life is flooded with decisions, data and dilemmas. I am grateful that you turned to me, in the midst of all of that, when you needed a proven, experienced, highly-skilled consultant.
I want this Thanksgiving to be as meaningful as possible and I’m sure you do too.
To ensure this, I noted 12 ideas, some I’ve done and others I plan to do, that extend this holiday beyond turkey and dressing. Will you join with me to embrace this Thanksgiving’s purpose by contributing in the following ways to our global society? Please share what happens and Happy Thanksgiving!
