Being Thankful

As Thanksgiving approaches, I focus on the things that I am thankful for –

  • As for my career, I am in the right place for me. I love the challenge!
  • I cherish the clients I serve, for the problems they bring to me to solve.
  • I value the team that works with me to serve our clients
  • I cherish a good night’s sleep and my health
  • I am thankful for the 20 plus wonderful years that I have been married to Steve.

I have made being thankful an all year round task.  Every morning I write down three things I am grateful for and three more things that I appreciate.  It starts my day focusing on the good things in my life.  I find that when life is going great it’s very easy to take things for granted and when I see trouble it is way too easy to whine and complain about what I don’t have.

Recently James moved to Texas.  He invited us down for Christmas.  I don’t expect snow.  However now that both of my boys moved south – I cherish the crazy weather in Wisconsin.   When the boys moved to Arizona, my first visit was in June.  The temperature was 115 degrees outside.  It felt like I was baking in an oven.  I missed the cooler temperatures of Wisconsin.  I also missed the color green – the green grass, lush farm fields and evergreen trees.  Both I have taken for granted many, many years.  It seems to truly appreciate what I have – I need to lose it for a little while.

Thank you for reading my newsletter.  I appreciate the comments I received for the years.

Appreciate what you have.  Happy Thanksgiving!
