Thanks & Giving: Two words, not one.
Two words, considered separately, can provide a bit of a twist during this week and as long thereafter as you would like…
We give thanks for all we have, and check off our list; health is usually at the top, a job (definitely!), home (ditto), family, friends, food, clothing, transportation. We stand and recite, but how about a little paradigm shift here and we become pro-active? Step away from our ego-centered selves and decide to give to others, so others could give thanks?
Could you help someone disabled and pick up a few items for them at the market when you do your own food shopping? Fix a broken faucet, a broken window, or listen to the broken-hearted? Giving of our time makes an incredible impact on another’s life. What could you do so others were thanking you?
And if you are on the receiving end, who could you thank? Grandparents for their wisdom and acceptance? A neighbor who picks up your child from school when you aren’t able? I recall the statement, “If you can read and write, thank a teacher.” Is there a special teacher who changed your life, or even just believed in your abilities and encouraged you? Make this Thanksgiving a time of acknowledgment and praise.
Two simple words… “thanks” and “giving”. This time of year, perhaps more than any other time of the year, J.R.LIGGETT Ltd. wants to thank you, whether you are a long time customer of nearly 30 years, 20 years, or even 2 days. A business is nothing without customers, and J.R.LIGGETT’S appreciates their customers immensely… 6 blog Followers and 1, 479 Facebook Followers (and counting!) We are immeasurably honored!
We know this time of year can be hectic and wearing on your psyche… the idea of one stop shopping appeals to all of us. Are you aware that while you’re pushing your cart around Whole Foods Markets, you can stroll on over to their Whole Body department and pick up J.R.LIGGETT’S Shampoo Bars? It can be that easy. You know you can trust Whole Foods Markets to provide the highest quality natural and organic products, and J.R.LIGGETT’S has met and exceeded Whole Foods strict criteria for uncompromising quality and purity for their natural body care line. With 40 stores throughout the United States, 7 locations in Canada, and 6 in the United Kingdom, I’d say you’re pretty well covered. Also, don’t forget to support your local natural food stores that carry J.R.LIGGETT’S… Those unique stores tucked here and there through-out the country are a vital part of a healthy business and family community.
And for Thanksgiving travel, toss in J.R.LIGGETT’S ‘A Natural Traveler’ with the accompanying Shampoo Bar, or J.R.LIGGETT’S Mini Traveler in your carry-on. Both are wise choices if you are looking for an easy and simple way to breeze through TSA regulations–no liquid shampoos for you– you’ve got the hair and body washing needs covered with just one product; even comes in handy for a quick, light garment rinse out. Nothing to spill or waste, it’s always portion-perfect, never a problem–hey, we know you don’t need anymore problems. J.R.LIGGETT’S makes it soooo easy, so simple, so smart!
