I honestly can’t believe it’s Thanksgiving again! Didn’t we just ring in 2015? Well no matter, here we are and all I can say is thank you! This year I saw my company grow from a one woman show to a business complete with a partner and five assistants. Fleurenasci is now in funeral homes throughout the state of Georgia, and we are busy making Christmas presents for some very lucky recipients. Thankful is an understatement. I am thankful for each person who has told someone about Fleurenasci, and I am thankful for the shares and likes on Facebook and other social media outlets. I am deeply amazed and humbled when I get a call from someone who says, “my friend said I had to call you.”
I love doing what I do at Fleurenasci, but perhaps the most rewarding part of my job is when I hear from someone who has received a unique gift from us. There are sometimes tears when the gift was created as a way to honor a friend or loved one, but most of all there is gratitude, and that simply makes my day.
As we gather around the table tomorrow with loved ones and friends, please know that I will be thankful for each of you. May each of you have a wonderfully blessed day and make sure you leave room for dessert. Happy Thanksgiving from your friends at Fleurenasci.
Veterans Day is a special day for many of us. It’s a time to say thank you to those who serve so that we may be free. My dad was one of these fine men. You may or may not know, I am an Arizona gal and my dad retired at Williams AFB in Arizona. I graduated from Chandler High School and was married in Mesa, AZ. I tell you this so you know why I love a particular memorial so much! The memorial is Anthem Veterans Memorial and its truly a unique place to visit and remember.
The Anthem Veterans Memorial is a monument dedicated to honor the service and sacrifice of our country’s armed forces in Anthem, AZ. The pillar of pride provides a place of honor and reflection for veterans, their family and friends, and those who desire to show their respects to those service men and women who have and continue to courageously serve our county. And what I love the most is the Five Pillars. Here is some insight from the Memorial’s website.
Five Pillar Significance
- The five pillars represent the unity of the five branches of the United States military serving steadfast together.
- They are staggered in size with their appropriate military seal placements on each pillar based upon the Department of Defense prescribed precedence.
- At precisely 11:11 a.m. each Veterans Day (Nov. 11), the sun’s rays pass through the ellipses of the five Armed Services pillars to form a perfect solar spotlight over a mosaic of The Great Seal of the United States.
The 11:11 is such a strong angel number correlation to me, and it just brings a smile to my heart when I think about it. If you are ever in Anthem, you have to visit this beautiful memorial! So on this special day, I want to say “Thank You” to all veterans from everyone here at Fleurenasci!
