What Thanksgiving Means to Us


For most of us the meaning of Thanksgiving includes feasting, four-day weekends, football games family gatherings and the start of the holiday season. Given how the holiday lights and festivities sometimes keep us from reflecting on the simple pleasures of life, here are some famous quotes that will ensure to get your holiday season off to a good start:

if the only prayer you said in your whole life is thank you, that would suffice – Meister Eckhart

As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them. ~John Fitzgerald Kennedy

Thanksgiving Day comes, by statute, once a year; to the honest man it comes as frequently as the heart of gratitude will allow. ~Edward Sandford Martin

 Not what we say about our blessings, but how we use them is the true measure of our Thanksgiving 
W.T Purkiser

In light of these quotes and others you may know, one must not forget that there is always something to be thankful for. At Allan Block,  we are thankful for our customers; our manufacturing partners, the army of certified contractors who build with our products everyday, the technical community of engineers, architect and specifiers  who  help design solutions with us, to the distributors who promote and sell are products and last but not least to the customers who buy our products to build beautiful landscapes, and shape the world we live in.

From all of us at Allan Block, we wish you a happy Thanksgiving. Enjoy your family members, the day off, the meal, the parades or whatever your thing is for this holiday.
