Taco heads! Closed on Thanksgiving Day.
Thanksgiving to me is about sharing and caring and spending time with the folks that you love. The ones that bring you joy. Mama Lane would have loved this pic.
Here’s a story.
My Mom had the gift of gab, and she had the work ethic gene, as well. She was a retail sales person. She did as well as she could achieve. But she aspired to make better of herself. She went back to school and got her associates degree. She ended up becoming and retiring a teacher’s aide for special children. She reached so many children.
I remember she told me a story about how she was at a local grocery store in San Antonio. It was the same one my brother worked at as a pharmacy tech before he passed away.
She said she ran into a student of hers from a long time ago. He had just been approved to live by himself. He was autistic. He was so happy and joyful to see my Mom. She said he ran up to her and said, “Ms. Quick!” She was jostled back a bit. He continued. “You told me I could do anything I put my mind to!” She was so blown away by it that she just gave him a big hug and a kiss. And he told her the story of how she inspired him to make something of himself, aside from whatever anybody said.
My Mom, Mama Lane, taught me everything I’ll ever need to know about treating people with love, respect, and kindness.
And she taught me how to gab, that’s for sure.
This Thanksgiving, Lane and all the Staff at Lane’s Quickie Tacos hope you spend this week catching up with your dear loved ones and even your friends. 🙂
Mama Lane isn’t here with us anymore, but she is the one who taught me how to love. Care. Give a sh@*. She’s been here with me since day one, May 18th, 2013, at the Tanana Valley Farmers Market.
She would wish all of you a very happy Thanksgiving Day spent with all of your loved ones and special close friends.
So from all of us here at Lane’s Quickie Tacos, have a very special holiday reunion.
