As the year winds down, Southern Pharmaceutical Services has many reasons to be thankful.

One of those is the family we have created over the years, which consists of our employees, residents, nurses, doctors and caregivers that we interact with daily.

Each day we are able to help the staff of the facilities and offices that we serve and often connect with the individual client or their family representatives. We enjoy the opportunity to serve our residents, clients and families, and want to say thank you for allowing us to be your partner in health.

This holiday season, we wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving!  Here are some ideas “to be more thankful this year”.

  • Fill a family Thanksgiving box. As part of your Thanksgiving preparation, create a Thanksgiving Box. Each day family members write on slips of paper something for which they are thankful that day and place them in the decorated box. The box will make a nice Thanksgiving table centerpiece, and when opened, a way to remember how blessed we are every day
  • Serve someone. In the weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, many agencies serving those in need expand their work. Food banks, churches, and other service organizations supply meals to the hungry on Thanksgiving.
  • Take time for quiet reflection. As the big day approaches, things get busier. Set aside some time each day to say thank you to God for all he has provided.
  • Invite someone new to dinner. Explore ways to invite those who may be alone or far from family to celebrate with you on the holiday.
  • Share blessings together. When gathered around the table, many families will ask guests to share something for which they are thankful.
  • Send cards to those we miss. Remember those who are not able to be with you this year or those serving in the military by making or purchasing cards for them. On Thanksgiving Day invite all who are gathered in your home to sign and/or write a note on the cards to those who are missing. Mail them the next day to share the gratitude.
