“And in despair I bowed my head;‘There is no peace on earth,’ I said;‘For hate is strong, and mocks the songOf peace on earth, good-will to men!’Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:‘God is not dead, nor doth he sleep!The Wrong shall fail, the Right prevail,With peace on earth, good-will to men!’”– Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

This is a special time of year. Between gathering with family, celebrating the companionship of friends and coworkers, and running around in the fray of Christmas shoppers, it’s easy to focus on “what’s next” instead of enjoying the moment. As a business owner, I run into this challenge every year. With January and a new year on the horizon, I get caught up in planning the next steps for Roofing & More and sometimes fail to focus on what matters – reflecting on how thankful I am for my family and of course, the Reason for this season.

That’s why I’d like to keep this installment of the President’s Corner short and simply say, “Merry Christmas.” Enjoy and cherish your loved ones and know that as a Roofing & More customer, you are family. We will see you in the new year.
