Message from Gail Ridings, TallGrass Owner
I just celebrated my 60th birthday. My dear girlfriends threw me a fabulous, touching, surprise party and Chuck and I went to the Western Slope for a couple of days for a fun getaway. So, I did indeed celebrate. And, while I always count my blessings for every healthy and happy birthday, this one - for the first time in my life - has thrown me for a bit of a loop.
Remember when you thought that someone in their sixties was "elderly"? Say, a woman with little round glasses, a shawl and a cane? I certainly don't feel old, but I realize that I'm in the last third of my life (if I live to be 90). Wow! That makes each day even MORE precious and I renew AGAIN my vow to not waste a single minute!
The holidays have so many opportunities for special moments. Not just for celebrations with family and friends, but the excitement in the eyes of a child, a Christmas carol that brings fond memories, the sound of the Salvation Army bells, the chance to volunteer and help someone in need (see our Soldier Boxes and Christmas Stockings story below) or just a quiet moment of gratitude and appreciation in the midst of the hustle and bustle.
Our family at TallGrass has been honored to serve you this past year and we wish you the very best during this wonderful season. We hope to share our holiday joy with you very soon!
