Thanksgiving is a special celebration in our country. Although originally, people may have gathered to give thanks and bless the harvest after months of working the fields, the spirit of the celebration remains in a state of gratitude, when families and friends gather to pause, be grateful for the simple things in life, and break bread.
When I reflect on my own gratitude, the first thing that comes to mind is the health and wellbeing of my family, friends and colleagues. This is a reality that can change in an instant, and deserves never-ending appreciation.
Next, I am also thankful to be surrounded by wonderful people who, in one way or another, make a difference in the lives of everyone with whom they come in contact. Given the opportunity, each one of us has the chance to enrich someone else’s life, validating the deeper purpose and meaning of our actions and our existence.
Last, how fitting is it that during this month of Thanksgiving, we also honor our veterans, whom without their efforts and sacrifice, we would not enjoy the freedoms we do? Let us remember to thank our veterans every day of the year.
In these times of ongoing conflict around the world, I hope we can find a way to have respectful and constructive conversations to solve our differences of opinion, and continue to build a better place for all.
On behalf of everyone at Precision Plus, we wish for you and yours to enjoy your time together this Thanksgiving.
