Thanksgiving is a time to be Thankful. To gather with loved ones and be grateful. Even though sometimes it may seem like there is so much wrong with the world, taking a time out to realize what you have is important. Here is our list...

family thankful

1.  Family

These are the people that pull us through everyday, the good and the bad. I am thankful for their love and support every day. The people who stand by us, no matter what. These are the people that are family, and they aren’t always blood relatives.

2.  Community

As a small family business, Grand Banks thrives on the community Cape Ann has to offer. For over 28 years we have had the support of builders and homeowners and we can’t express our gratitude enough. We look forward to being able to help further build this community.

home thankful

3. Home

Not everyone is fortunate enough to have one of these. So it’s especially important to be thankful. When you’re cozied up with the people you love, that’s where home is.

craftsmanship hard work thankful

4. Hard work + Craftsmanship

    There is something to be said for a good day of hard work. The feeling of gratification from building and working with your hands is unique. It’s timeless tradition that our city was built on, and something we will never forget.

    health thankful

    5. Health

      It’s easy to take for granted our healthy days. When our bodies function so well we don’t even notice. Not everybody can do that. I am grateful for my health and that of my love ones.

      We love to think that we are in control of our lives. That we make our own decisions and create our own fate. Our country was founded on this notion of free will and choosing your own fate. But what happens when fate chooses you?

      If you have come up against windows before, you know what I’m talking about. We often have customers come in and tell us they need a new window and give us some dimensions and think we can just go from there. But that’s not how it works.
