We aren't thankful for just the turkey. The Ivy Group is thankful to have been in business for 25 years.
We are thankful for our clients, long-standing and new. They're collaborative, they're understanding, and they trust in us. Usually, they have friends. We love when friends of clients approach us with their projects! You can never have enough friends.
We are thankful for our vendors: always professional, always flexible, and always great partners. Most importantly, they turn our work into beautiful finished products. They make us look good.
We are thankful for our men and women in uniform and their families. Thanks to them, we can sleep easier at night.
We are thankful for the great companies that share our first floor. Thanks David, Stephen, Mark and Tom. You're all so grounded. (Groan.)
We are thankful for our parking lot. Come rain, snow, and cold weather, we have an incredibly short sprint to our cars. (Others also seem to appreciate our parking lot. On occasion, we give thanks for tow trucks who quickly come when called.)
We are thankful for our offices-with-a-view. Windows make daydreaming in the middle of a tough day sooo…how you say…rewarding.
We are thankful that our office is pet-friendly! (Roscoe, Leon, and Cairo are thankful, too.)
We are thankful for a boss who welcomes us into her home for a great Christmas party every year. Bring on the gag gifts!
We are thankful for our team. Who knew you could get so attached to an office mate?
And we are thankful for co-workers who come bearing food. Ellen recently wept tears of joy when Chris unexpectedly came bearing her favorite lunch (the meal which she would request as her last if circumstances ever find her on death row): hamburger steak and French fries from Chap’s!
We are thankful to be gainfully employed. These are difficult times for many, and we are truly grateful to be able to look forward to each new day.
Above all, we are thankful for our families. Their love has brought us to where we are today.
So much to be thankful for, and not just on Thanksgiving!
