Thanksgiving Day is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessing of the harvest and of the preceding year. It is the time of year when you reflect on your life and the things that you are personally most thankful to have everyday. Whether the list is small or large, each one counts just the same. Since Thanksgiving is only 2 days away and most of us did not plant crops this year, I decided to go around the office and asked our staff what they were thankful for.
“I am thankful for my family and friends, being healthy and having the opportunity to do what I love and surround myself with art every day.”
“Healthy parents, a supportive partner, spending the holiday with my grandparents and loved ones and most important, I am thankful to be thankful for all of these things and grateful for my life ,not just today but everyday.”
“I am thankful for working in such a beautiful environment with inspiring art every day.“
