The Month of Thanks and Giving

By Razonia McClellan

Around this time of year we all begin to reflect on what we are thankful for presently. Over the next few weeks, the entire fab RMPR team will be detailing their thankfulness on our blog. I will start.

I’m not going to sugar coat it…this has been a rough week. I came back to a mountain of work after my NYC trip. I got a flat tire on Halloween night. I sliced the tip of my finger off (I know, ewwwww) on Wednesday morning. Today, my son was diagnosed with asthma. Plus, I feel a cold coming on (boo).

HOWEVER, my husband changed my tire to my spare (the new tire will have to wait until Saturday), my fingertip was saved, my son now has an inhaler, and I am on some serious cold meds, and this all had me thinking about how blessed I am. I have a wonderful team—both office, home and beyond—that support me and hopefully feel supported right back. It is the most wonderful feeling and I am filled with thanks every day.

This team allows me to do what I love all the while being able to include some side projects I am passionate about, such as Operation Blanket Love. And in all honesty, these things are small setbacks. There are so many people who suffer from problems much greater and more devastating.

For example, did you know in December 2015 a Lubbock homeless man passed away due to extremely cold weather?

This will be our second year to collect new or gently used blankets and distribute to Lubbock’s homeless population. Anyone interested in dropping off a blanket may do so at Cardinal’s Sports Center or Gristy’s Cleaners (all locations across Lubbock).

Together we can help keep Lubbock’s most vulnerable warm.

I hope you all have a wonderful Thanksgiving. Regardless of the early Christmas decorations in our office, Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. It gives me a moment to reflect on my blessings, such as our great clients, cooking with my grandmother and mom, my friends and family, my colleagues, wonderful media, and more.

Warm wishes,
