SherWare takes time to be thankful
As I eagerly look ahead in the week to that glorious day when I stuff myself silly with turkey, dressing, crescent rolls and all those delicious side dishes and desserts that make the Thanksgiving meal a feast to remember, I thought I would take a minute to reflect on the “Thanksgiving” part of the day.
Tis the season to be thankful for what we’ve been given, even in a year where it seems like it’s hard to come up with a list. Not only has the oil and gas industry taken some pretty hard hits this year with the Deepwater Horizon well explosion and leak, but with new EPA requirements, government stances and local battles across the country, but the economy, job market and overall happiness of our nation seems to be dragging as well as another year passes.
I discovered this quote by William Arthur Ward this week and found it appropriate to frame my thoughts: “Gratitude can transform common days into thanksgivings, turn routine jobs into joy, and change ordinary opportunities into blessings.”
As you prepare to gather around the table on Thursday with family and friends to partake in this deliciously-overwhelming holiday, take a minute to reflect on what you’re thankful this season, in regard to your business and life.
Here are three quick thoughts that I am thankful for:
– A job. As simple as it seems and as much as I sometimes dread coming into work (I mean, who doesn’t?), I’m thankful for a place to work where I can help others and earn money for my family.
– That everyone is still in the SherWare family. With businesses across the country cutting back, I’m thankful that SherWare hasn’t had to even think about laying off staff.
– How many of you fill up my inbox with questions and comments about our software, blog and company in general. It’s always exciting to have a new person to meet and connect with.
Have a happy and wonderful Thanksgiving holiday!
