A Note From Cindi Bigelow To Her Father, David Bigelow:  Thank you, Dad, For Your Many Invaluable Lessons!

bigelow tea cindi bigelow and dadAs the third generation CEO of family-owned Bigelow Tea (and daughter of parents who will be honored as pioneers by the Specialty Food Association on June 27 for the significant impact and positive influence they have had on the American specialty food industry), I was recently asked for special reflections this Father’s Day.  I wanted to share them with you.

The most important thing any father can do is give his children the assurance that whenever they turn around, he’ll be there – providing, protecting, advising, loving … all the things fathers are meant to do. And that is exactly what my father did for my sister and me. ​

He raised me to have same sense of fairness as my moral compass in all aspects of my life.  He also taught me to be successful without being successful at someone else’s expense. ​For my father, the highest calling is to be a good, decent human being. He lives by that in business and with his family.

Over the years, David Bigelow continues to be an inspiration as Chairman of the Board, a father and a husband.

Everyone should be as fortunate as I am, because one of life’s greatest blessings is to have a father committed to doing right in a world that often confuses right and wrong. His philosophy is very simple: be honest, be fair, be concerned about others more than yourself and remember that success has many different definitions.

Thank you, Dad, for your many invaluable lessons and more importantly, the power of your example.

With my warmest Father’s Day wishes to dads everywhere,

Father’s Day Gifts for 2009 to Thank Dear old Dad!

Father’s Day is upon us on June 21st this year, and you may be surprised to find that it’s not much of a world-wide event. The United States is one of the few countries in the world that has an official day on which fathers are honored by their children, and it was not until 1924 that President Calvin Coolidge made it a national event. So for the 64.3 million fathers in America today, Bigelow Tea salutes you on your special day!

It’s not always easy being the Dad, as famous comedian and father Bill Cosby wrote:

“If (dads) feel bewildered and defeated, let him take comfort from the fact that whatever he does in any fathering situation has a fifty percent chance of being right.

So, on the third Sunday of every June on Father’s Day we thank Dads for their valiant efforts with gifts, and maybe dinner with some good family time. But why it is such a struggle to get “Dear Old Dad” a present more interesting than a new tie? Well, let’s look and see how Bigelow Tea can help…

And if Dad double-bogies on the 18th green, he’ll want to relax with our Bigelow Tea spa treatment; with everything for a great at home treatment, and 80 assorted flavored tea bags!

I wonder which 2009 Father’s Day gift Cindi Bigelow will get for her dad, David C. Bigelow to celebrate Fathers Day? It’s a great day indeed, and a great time for Dad as well as the whole family who can be your oasis in these challenging times as Cindi has stated. The very best of the day to you and your family this Fathers Day, from the Bigelow Tea family!

Don’t make your Dad pretend this Father’s Day; forget the socks and ties and soap-on-a-rope, even if it’s his favourite scent. Deciding what to pick up for your Dad can drive you crazy but you can put on the brakes and stop at Bigelow Tea for the gift he’s sure to truly love.
