To all the Couture Towel Fans,

As many of us know that Thanksgiving is a day of giving thanks for the blessings of the harvest and of the preceding years. I would like to take this opportunity to share a story with you here today.

Last week, while I was in our Couture Towel shop, I had a chance to meet and talk to one of our customers. She is a lovely and friendly lady, a strong mom, and most certainly an amazing woman and a friend. She told me about her 25-year-old daughter just recovered from 3-weeks long coma, and how she would rather have God taken her away instead of her daughter. I see a mixture of ease and hardship, happiness and sorrow, hope and pain in her eyes. As an encouragement, I took a mini fluffy towel origami from the shelves and handed it to her. I said to her with tears in my eyes: “I hope no matter what happens in your life, you will always remember what you’ve got and you have everyone with you.”

Often in life, we come across many people who have helped us, made our lives better and supported us. They may be our family, our mentors, or our friends. Today is a day more than festivities, it allows us to ponder upon what lessons we have learned, and a day to spread the love and happiness to everyone around us.

As you are celebrating with your loved ones on this Thanksgiving Day, take a moment to appreciate and be thankful for everything around you.
