There’s a wise saying that “It’s not happiness that brings us gratitude; it’s gratitude that brings us happiness.” With the hustle and bustle of Thanksgiving preparations, it’s easy to get caught up in who is bringing what and whose house are we going to and how are we going celebrate with all our families? Over the next few days and throughout the Christmas season, let’s all remember to take some time to reflect upon what we’re thankful for and appreciate the special people and moments in life. Let gratitude fill the place where getting caught up in the chaos of the holidays previously lived… allow yourself to feel thankful, and for that thankfulness to bring you happiness. And, we’ll get the ball rolling… in today’s blog post, check out what some Home Office team members are grateful for!
