Taking a Moment to Give Thanks

Our great American holiday, Thanksgiving, is a yearly tradition of parades and football and full tummies as we indulge in turkey and stuffing, and yams and stuffing, and green bean casserole and stuffing (guess who loves stuffing?), and pumpkin pie... Yet, it’s the Giving Thanks part that is really the soul of the celebration, and the point to which we should really give some thought. It’s easy to become complacent and take for granted all we have, so if on this one day we humble ourselves to look around and count our blessings, we might find it a truly joyous experience.

When asked, “What are you thankful for?”, here’s what some of the folks here at EK Success Brands contributed:

Kerry: I am thankful for so much this year—a job I love, a roof over my head, food to eat, healthy babies and the patience of my husband who is a stay-at-home dad! I would not be the same without any of them.

Andrea: I’m thankful for bubble baths—might seem odd seeing as I have so much to be thankful for: wonderful husband, adorable and loving 4 year old, great friends, family, health, my job, but there’s something about those white fluffy clouds of soap that make everything better. To see the pure and total joy in my son’s eyes when I pull out the bubble bath bottle, the sincerity in his voice when he tells me I’m the best, just because instead of a plain old bath, he’s getting a bubble bath. The fun we have making beards with bubbles, blowing them so they fly up in the air like snow; clapping our bubble filled hands together so the bubbles go all over the place. I am thankful for bubble baths because it gives me a moment of laughter, and the realization that it’s the simple things that mean the most. Happy Thanksgiving—wishing everyone bubble bath moments.

Debbie: I am thankful that my husband and I are able to have so many of our families at our home for Thanksgiving dinner. I am very, very thankful that our son in the army is safe although he is halfway around the world from us this holiday season.

Toni: I am very THANKFUL for my family and especially thankful to have my father with us this Thanksgiving and hopeful that he will be with us for many Thanksgivings to come. I am also thankful for Jennifer Stevens (wife of Andrew Brown, fellow employee) and the many others in Haiti who are helping the people through the cholera epidemic. Their volunteerism, courage, and care are remarkable and inspirational.

Carol: I am thankful to be surrounded by the creativity of the people I work with!

Allison: I’m thankful to work for a creative company that inspires me and teaches me how easy it is to craft with my kids.

Tyra: I am thankful for a loving and funny husband, three happy, healthy and respectful kids, many friends, a warm house, and a fat cat!

Kristel: I am grateful for so many things—God, family and grandbabies, old friends and new, work I enjoy that challenges me, my comforts and my freedoms, my country and the men and women who protect it. I am thankful for everyday wonders like a moody autumn sky or the rich colors of the leaves on the sweet gum tree across the street, the rub of my calicos against my legs at feeding time or a horse’s breath on my hand as we meet. I am thankful for life.
