What do you find yourself thankful for this year?  Has it been a year of mostly ups, a year of mostly downs?  Regardless of where life’s journey has taken us, there is something in every life to be thankful for.

Up until recently, we have been blessed with the most amazing weather – our fall seemed like summer stretched into eternity.  And when winter did come, it came so fast & hard that the leaves turned overnight, and the city was blanketed in swathes of vibrantly colored leaves, swirling pieces of the rainbow that danced up and down the streets until snow covered everything in silence.  I have lived here nearly my entire life and can’t remember a year that I enjoyed the changing of the seasons quite as much.  This year I am especially thankful to be in Colorado, and most especially Colorado Springs.

It helps that we live in an amazing part of the country – sure, we’re landlocked, and most people live in a subalpine semidesert – but ecosystems aside, this is a picturesque part of the country where Starbucks and parks go hand in hand with mountains and malls.  As a matter of fact, Money-Rates listed Colorado as the 4th best State to Make a Living In, stating that the high average income and typical cost of living make things very bearable.  247Wallst.com lists Colorado as one of the Top 10 States With The Best Quality of Life, citing active voters and policitical participants, the rapid economic growth, strong numbers of new businesses, and predicted future employment gains.  According to the Gallup-Healthways Well-Being Index, Colorado is the second happiest state in the nation.  Business Insider did a huge poll of Americans across the country, asking them all kinds of things about states other than their own – and Colorado scored as one of the ‘favorite states’, the state with the most beautiful scenery, a top vacation spot, and a state with ‘nice’ people.

I am thankful – my life is blessed.  I hope yours is, too.  Thanksgiving is great time to reflect on all the positives in our life, big or small.  They don’t always have to be personal – sometimes we have things to be thankful for at work, or in our environment, the people who surround us, the circumstances we find ourselves in, and the opportunities given to us.  I know that we – all of us here, at Swartz Electric – are grateful, for a myriad of things.  This year business blossomed, and we grew – there’s me, new here in the office, and our newest service electrician Heath Ritchie.  Our position as Colorado Springs highest customer-rated service electrician has only solidified, and our customer base grows by leaps and bounds.

The occasion of Thanksgiving gives us the opportunity to thank all our esteemed customers.

We extend our sincere appreciation to our customers who have been a very supportive family through these years of great endeavors.

 It has been our pleasure to serve you over the past eight years. The Swartz Electric family wants you to know that we truly value your business and appreciate our loyal clients.  The growth we have experienced over the years is entirely due to that loyalty and  your feedback, testimonials, reviews, and recommendations.

It is once more that festive time of year –

We’ll indulge in food, and friends, and cheer.

Do not forget, while in the midst of jubilation,

To celebrate faith, hope, and love as a nation.

 Remember your blessings, count them one by one,

And remember to praise His name when all is done.

He who thanks but with the lips
Thanks but in part;
The full, the true Thanksgiving
Comes from the heart.
J.A. Shedd

The year has turned its circle,
The seasons come and go.
The harvest all is gathered in
And chilly north winds blow.

Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain,
So open wide the doorway —
Thanksgiving comes again!
