Here's to You! by Floyd Wickman
More than a date on a calendar or a sentiment on a card, who we are, where we go, what we do and who is along with us on the journey - THANKSGIVING is about the people in our lives. The ones who make it better. The ones who have taught us - sometimes in gracious ways, sometimes by example and sometimes by showing us what we do not want in our lives.
I am humbled by the incredible men and women that I have met throughout my life and career and am honored to call so many folks with tremendous minds and incredible spirit friends, colleagues, mentors, proteges and clients. They have changed me. Lifted me. Shown me courage. Shown me humility. Shown me greatness. Shown me passion and shown me purpose. And I am grateful.
It is in the giving of thanks and the counting of blessings that we can see how very blessed we are day in and day out. We celebrate this season with special meals and the gathering of family and friends but it is truly every day that we should hold that attitude of gratitude close and remind ourselves where we've come from and who has touched our lives along the way.
So let me say this please - THANK YOU. For everyone of you who have passed through my life, sat in an audience, believed in our trainers, trusted us with your business, your confidence, your friendship and your family - THANK YOU. Linda and I are very blessed to have the support of wonderful people like you -- and healthy, happy children and grandchildren. And that is truly something we are thankful for every day.
I wish you and yours a happy, memorable and safe Thanksgiving!
