This week in the USA, we’re all a little more gratitude minded. I think, for the most part, we’re always thankful no matter what time of year it is but it’s still refreshing to see and hear so many expressions of thankfulness. Here at One2One Network, we have a lot to be thankful for! Most importantly, we are very thankful for all of you who are One2One Network members! You are vital to us and we appreciate you!
As we gather with friends and family and take a moment to express the things we’re thankful for, the O2O team would like to share some of our thankful things with you.
Barbara – “I’m thankful for supportive friends & family, for the doctors, nurses and therapists at Gillette Children’s Specialty Hospital, for my kids’ sense of humor and for being healthy.”
Paula – “I am thankful for my family, friends and especially for all of our health.”
Amber – “I’m thankful for a life full of blessings, an amazing and supportive family, fun and lively friends who keep life interesting, a stimulating career and a spirited and special place to call home.”
Maryellen – “This year I am thankful for being part a family that genuinely enjoys each other’s company, friends who make me laugh ’til I cry, watching the sun rise over the trees on my morning run while the rest of the world is still asleep, the assortment of Apple gadgets perma-glued to my hand, coffee (!), and O2O for hiring me and proving that college certainly won’t be the end of my education.”
Malia – “I am thankful not just for having a job but one that I enjoy and working with people that I like and admire. For friends who are there when I need to talk. And for family that loves me well.”
This time of year brings out all kinds of blogging; recipe sharing, lists of thankful things, decorating and crafts ideas, music choices and more. We always love reading about what our members are up to!
