Life can get hectic, and it’s been especially hectic this past year. While 2020 seemed to last forever, 2021 has just flown by. One of our favorite parts about this time of year is that in the midst of all the crazy, we get to take a step back and reflect on all of the great things that have happened. Looking back on 2021, here are 3 big things we’re thankful for at ASF Clean Team.
Businesses are Reopening
Do you all remember in March 2020, right at the beginning of everything shutting down, when we all thought things would be back to normal by Easter? It’s almost two years later, and things are still not back to normal. It’s easy to focus on the negative side, but let’s look at the positive.
Now, businesses that were curbside only can welcome guests back into their store or restaurant. Co-workers who haven’t been in the office for almost two years get to see each other face-to-face again. Extroverts can finally start getting re-energized. And though there are still some obstacles, for the most part, this can all be done safely. If your office is getting ready to welcome staff back in, call in ASF Clean Team for a full disinfecting and sanitizing to give everyone a fresh start.
Families Get to be Reunited
When we look back on positives from 2021, it’s hard not to think of the shift back to regular life. Sure, things started to get back to normal towards the end of 2020, but it really picked up in 2021. Instead of seeing people through smudged windows, we got to start seeing each other in person again socially.
This means that for some people they finally get to see their family members again. After almost two years, they get to hug each other. They get to see new family members in person for the first time. While video chat has been an amazing blessing to have during the pandemic, there’s just nothing like the feeling of being reunited with your family.
We’ve Been Fortunate with Our Business and Family
We have more than 3 things we’re thankful for at ASF Clean Team, but the biggest one on our list is how fortunate we have been this past year. According to PolitiFact, one-third of small businesses have closed over the course of the pandemic. As a small, woman-owned, family business, this was a great concern for us.
But over the course of the pandemic, we’ve been fortunate. We’ve still been able to help our wonderful clients. We’ve provided disinfecting and sanitizing services, as well as our exterior detailing services. People have returned to work safely, knowing that their workplace was clean because of our business.
And through it all, we’ve been able to be together as a family. Not only are we family-owned, but our team and clients are our family as well. It is such a blessing to be able to connect with these people and do the job we love in a time where everyone seems so disconnected. It’s been a crazy year, but we couldn’t be more thankful for everything we’ve been given.
Happy Thanksgiving from ASF Clean Team.
