"A supportive work environment" - I was thrilled to see this one, although they may just be buttering me up.
"My home in a small rural community with a deck to drink wine on and admire the view (in warm weather)" - We are all grateful for sunny days on a deck.
"A dusting of snow instead of 3 inches" - I too was glad to see a light snow! I do want to note that if this employee is fearful of 3 inches of snow, we have a long winter in front of us!
"Friends" - Old and new. Friends to craft with, friends with shoulders to cry on, big belly laugh friends, friends you can tell absolutely anything!
"Copious amounts of coffee" - Every day... Often... Really.
"My job, which helps keep me mentally alert and us out of the poor house" - We do try to keep our employees out of the poor house for sure, as for mentally alert, you won't find a sharper staff anywhere!
"My four little dogs and friends" - This was a recurring theme, pets and friends. They are one and the same really, aren't they?
"My job"- We are all in agreement - this job rocks.
"Best friend of 30+ years" - What a gift!
"Where I live" - This happens to be a house on 40 acres, high on a ridge in the country. At night the stars are so brilliant, you can see the Milky Way!
"Pets" - The pets that have left us, thankful for the time we had together. And grateful for a cat, Queen of Sheba, who welcomes this employee when she gets home.
These were a blast to read and reflect on. Of course, this wouldn't be fair if I didn't identify 3 things I am thankful for in addition to my health and my family. They are;
Music - It can take us anywhere and make us smile, cry or dream.
Magical moments - Those moments when everything goes right, an event is flawless or a deal comes together. An amazing feeling.
Mayhem - When things go sideways. It makes you think quickly and gets your heart racing. That's when you feel truly alive!
This year has been full of magical moments and has had its share of mayhem. I am most grateful for all of you that have been reading and following our journey. We have an incredible Chamber Family and I am thrilled to be a part of it!
