Today is Monday and we are back in work and looking forward to serving you well for all your mortgage needs this week. We hope that you all had a wonderful extended Thanksgiving weekend which was one of the few 4 day weekends that ABBA First acknowledges during the year. No. It isn’t necessarily a Holiday that is recognized by the state, the church, or all school systems for that matter. And we know it certainly isn’t recognized by the retail industry- for Friday is one one of the biggest selling days of the year. But for ABBA First, we make it a time for family to get together as we celebrate the blessings that God has allowed us to have over the past year and, as a family with our children and grandchildren, we give thanks on Thanksgiving to Him for His provisions. Besides that, we also celebrated Christmas this year so we called it “Thanksmas”. We decorated our house for Christmas and exchanged gifts with our children with Christmas music sofly playing in the background (well actually it was blaring but with six grandchildren…well, you get the picture). It was wonderful. Now come Christmas Day, our children can be with their in-laws without fear of having to meet deadlines to get from place to place. It will be peaceful for all! I hope that your holidays will be blessed and that you too will have a peace as you celebrate these wonderful days with your loved ones. Merry Thanksmas to ALL!
