The GLAD WORKS Team Gives Thanks.
Just for fun, we decided to go around and ask the team what they're thankful for this year. The answers we got are fantastic, and we all realize that we are pretty darn fortunate in many ways. Sure, maybe things aren't always awesome, but we have the things that truly matter: health, family, love and coffee. Not everyone is so lucky.
So, let's take a moment to share what we're grateful for this Thanksgiving.
Adam: I'm thankful for good friends and family, a strong company and team, 2 chihuahuas and a cat named Carson, the coffee plant, my iPhone 6 plus, and most importantly, my amazing wife Gina.
Mattie: I am thankful for my cat, Jeff. He is the most adorable creature who has ever lived and he keeps me entertained. I'm also thankful for my husband because he would do anything in the world for me and I don't know how I would live without him.
Kristen: I am thankful for my job, my home, my happy and healthy family, Amazon Prime, Peapod and my 3 dogs—even though they are a huge pain in the fanny. Also, I am thankful for the word "fanny" because it is awesome.
Don't let the cuteness fool you...
Andre: This year, I'm thankful for my family, blueberry scones and iced coffee from Wildflour bakery, without which I might not be able to function.
Brittany: I am thankful for the fine people at BioWare releasing Dragon Age: Inquisition. It came out on the 18th and I've already logged 57 hours, not counting the character I scraped because of my poor eyebrow choices :x
Matt: Oh you know… the usual:
- Family and friends
- Laughter, even in tough situations
- Opposable thumbs
- Stack Overflow
- Content Management Systems
- Online ordering during the holiday season
Juli: I'm very thankful for my new job at GLAD WORKS, my 2 healthy children, the help and support of my great husband and my parents. I'm also glad we were able to get my 2 year-old son out of a locker he had locked himself in yesterday during parent teacher confrences.
Happy Thanksgiving, GLAD WORKS friends!
What are you thankful for this year?
Yes, opposable thumbs are great I agree! I'm thankful I got a chance to meet some of the Gladworks gang this year. Hope you all get to enjoy loads of a Turkey, pie, family and football...and may you even have room for seconds! ;)
