Every year at this time, I remind my family and our family of Mountz employees how much I love Thanksgiving. I’m sure they are tired of hearing it, but it’s true – I love Thanksgiving. Thanksgiving to me means family, something near and dear to most everyone. Our kids come home from college more thankful than when they left. If you’ve had a chance to work a church event or soup kitchen at Thanksgiving it humbles you and provides a feeling of how lucky we are to have a warm home, quality food to eat and a family to cherish. This kind of reflection feels good to me.
Thanksgiving always causes me to hit the pause button and remind myself and anyone who will listen that to be thankful for what we have is more fulfilling than recounting what we may want. At Mountz we want things, like any company. However, what we have is a great resume of customers, vendors and employees to whom we owe a huge gratitude of thanks.
William Shakespeare said it best, “O Lord that lends me life, lend me a heart replete with thankfulness.”
