Like many people I talk with Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. There are lots of reasons. It’s simple (except for my wife who spends days preparing for the mad consumption moment). There are no presents. Just family, friends, and food. How could you not love that?
One thing I’ve been thinking about a lot lately is the whole matter of gratitude and giving thanks. It dawned on me the other day that I’ve never seen a thankful, unhappy person. I’ve never seen a grateful downer. There is something very powerful about giving thanks and expressing gratitude to God, to family, to co-workers, to friends, and sometimes to complete strangers. I am convinced that I just don’t say “Thank you” enough.
So, this year…thank you all for being part of a great company and for all the countless things you have done (large and small) to make life a little better for someone around you and to make our company a little stronger. It all adds up! And it really does matter!
Have a safe and loving holiday!
