Giving thanks for good things is easy. Customers who like you. Colleagues who think you’re a star. Neighbors who agree with you. Family members who are healthy. Gratitude for these things is a no-brainer. (It’s so easy we should do it more often. But that’s another issue.)
It’s the raw and seemingly uncontrolled issues in life that, if we allow them, can add the interesting and tasty spice to an ordinary turkey dinner. The customer that said adios. The colleague you can’t stand being in a meeting with. The neighbor who’d poison your lawn if they had a chance. The unexpected trip to the hospital. These events hold the most potential for us, these can transform us.
Giving thanks feels good. Doing so when we normally wouldn’t (or some say we shouldn’t) can change everything.

I am greatful that I only had stage 1 breat cancer and the my chances of it reaccuring is less than 10%. Candidly my cancer caught me by surprise but at the same time helped me realize what is truly important in life. I am also greatful and inspired by the employees of my group. They have worked under such tough pressure this year and yet maintained their true sense of humor and have kept their focus on the business. We took time out to have fun at Halloween as a Group and it was a blast! I am also thankful for the brave men and women who serve our country, without their service life would be different for all of us.
I’m thankful that I have a wonderful network of friends. My best friend, family friends, friends from my neighborhood, colleague friends, and my friends at Verus! Hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving Holiday and I hope you were surrounded by friends!
Warm regards, Sabrina
