This Time of Year


This time of year there is a song played that most of us are familiar with called: “There’s No Place Like Home for the Holidays”, and certainly nearly all people will be gathering in either their home, or someone else’s home.  This time of year, it is estimated that most us will visit friends and relatives in multiple homes over the course of Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years and a handful of alternatively celebrated Holidays.  Fact is, our homes are an integral part of this time of year.

This time of year, our homes take on a winter décor as we hang and set up lights, cheerful ornaments, and displays that seem to facilitate our gatherings with friends & family. This time of year, we begin to feel the warm Spirit of Christmas and the Joy of our hearts being filled with the treasure of creating lasting memories.

This time of year, we are inside more than outside because the dark sky comes upon us much earlier and the warmth of our home’s interior is much preferred over the cold of winter.  This time of year, our views of each have a softer glow as the colors of the Christmas tree lights mix on our faces.

This time of year, we sing a little more, smile a little more and forgive a little easier.  This time of year, we do things for one another and give gifts.  This time of year, we acknowledge what we are thankful for and find peace in what we have rather than what we don’t have.

This time of year, we think about our childhood and the memories of playing in the snow and our freezing cold red cheeks.  This time of year, we snuggle under the blankets and watch sappy Christmas movies and eat popped corn and drink eggnog.

This time of year, we begin to think of next year and what we hope to accomplish and do.  This time of year, we think of how time flies and determine to take in all we can.  This time of year, we promise to stay in touch and call more.

With all this going on, it’s no wonder we call it one of the busiest times of the year.  So, it is this time of year that all of us at Odd Fellows Contracting, Inc., wish to express how thankful we are for all of you and wish you many blessings of joy and happiness for all you have done to make this time of year special to all of us.
