I can hardly believe that Thanksgiving is upon us. Where did the year go? I’m not quite sure how we got here, but I do know that both professionally and personally I/we have a lot to be grateful for this year. As an organization we continue to be able to live out our mission on a daily basis and that is largely because of YOU. Y’all are our supporters, donors, and ambassadors and without YOU we would not be where we are today. I’ve been especially grateful for our board members who have believed in our mission and have been nimble with me in order to meet our mission – so much gratitude for the PAL Board!
Personally, I am grateful for my family, friends, and colleagues. You have been there for me, making me laugh and reminding me of my why. You have also ensured that I remember to have fun and live life along the way. Thus, with that in mind I am going to be taking Toni Morrison’s quote above to heart and this Thanksgiving, just be present. I am going to soak everything in. I’m not going to take pictures or try to capture moments. Instead I will just be and enjoy the day with my family and friends. I invite you to do the same and I wish all y’all an AMAZING Thanksgiving Day!
With gratitude, Jenny
