Happy Thanksgiving

As I think about what I’m grateful for this year, there’s much to be thankful for.  I want to take this opportunity to tell friends and colleagues in the industry that the marvelous opportunities to spend time – real and virtual – with you during the last 17 years have been a gift on both a professional and personal basis.  Thank you for allowing me to become part of your world.  That you would let a lawyer-type into your midst to the degree you have is testimony to how seriously you take your responsibilities.  I hope you have a great holiday with family and friends, and a wonderful year ahead.  My heart is with my people on the east coast, especially in New York and New Jersey – I wish you well.

My good friend Peggy again offers superb inspiration – this time for a Thanksgiving post.  There are far too many wondrous things for which I am constantly grateful.  I will list a few here but will be sure to slip several more into upcoming posts. As I sit in a hotel room in China I am very thankful:

  • For the free interchange of ideas and stories with friends, family, and colleagues.
  • To work with people who are committed to making a difference in the lives of kids.
  • To be able to choose to learn, work, and play in varying amounts.
  • For advancing technology which brings us together and allows us to share.

As this holiday weekend draws to a close, let me suggest we try to focus just a little bit more on gratitude. Whether it’s a gratitude walk, prayer, conversation, or just a gratitude moment, we could all stand to share our thanks and, in the process, gain a little more perspective.

P.S. – I was unable to post this from China. Sorry for the delay.
