Giving Thanks for the little things.

Happy Thanksgiving wishes from your pest control guys at Bulwark Exterminating.

Family at the dinner table at the Thanksgiving day.Thanksgiving is a wonderful time of year. It is very humbling to sit and ponder upon one’s fortune. From a guy that knows what it like to have the Helper without the Hamburger, no matter your situation there is always something to be thankful for.  Cliche, but “An attitude of gratitude will lift your altitude.”

So while I was rocking my baby girl in the wee hours of the morning, I realized despite  my body telling me that I would rather be sleeping, that this moment would create an endearing memory. Further, I am thankful for each and every smile my little on gives me. A smile, such a small act for us. But for her it takes almost all of her energy to find that muscle memory and curl those lips. Those smiles don’t last more than a brief moment. But the stamp it leaves is timeless.

And so it is that many of the mundane things of the world get overlooked. A simple smile, a kind word, a thank you. At the risk of loosing some of the macho “We toy with bugs” perception, Bulwark Exterminating would like to take the time to thank so many of our technicians for the little things they do. Things they believe go unnoticed. But these small things, we as a company hold to be monumental acts of service. Things our customers have expressed their gratitude for. We would like to echo those customers in their thanks with our Thanksgiving list.
