Thanksgiving is my absolute favorite holiday of the year. I don’t have the stress of giving the perfect gift, the responsibility of going to another holiday party, or the distracting commercialization of other holidays. To me, Thanksgiving is just quality time with friends and family to reflect on, and give thanks for, the many blessings of life.
One of my favorite Thanksgiving traditions takes place around the dinner table. As we enjoy our meal, everyone around the table talks about something they are especially thankful for. We continue to go around the table until everyone’s list has been exhausted, so we are usually well into desert by the time we’ve finished. Every time we do this, we are amazed at how much we have to be thankful for.
This year I have a long list of things I am thankful for, and I would like to share just a few of them with you:
1. I am thankful for the many clients and friends who have given us an opportunity to be of service to their organizations over the past 18 years.
2. I am thankful for every member of our team. Without them, we would not have been as successful as we have been in helping our clients reach their goals.
3. I am thankful to my many advisors and counselors for providing excellent advice and direction in business and personal matters.
4. I am thankful for the opportunities and ability to help our community through The Giving Back Foundation.
We all have a lot of distractions and sometimes frantic activity in our daily lives. I sincerely hope that, during the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday, each one of you will be able to set aside some time to reflect on your blessings, and give thanks to those who have helped you along the way. From all of us here at The Doug Williams Group… Happy Thanksgiving!
