Over the last few weeks, we asked Crawford & Company employees and our Facebook fans what they were thankful for this holiday season. Here are some of the responses we got.
Amy Gober Jones: I am Thankful that God blessed me with an amazing family and an awesome job!!!
Johnny Stevens: My health and my ability to work when I want to.
Huub Smout: The opportunity I get to prove I would be one hell of an asset to the company in the Netherlands.
Vetje Montijn: That me and the ones I love are healthy. And that I can help my love ones, when they need me, by being there for them!!
Liz Workman Miller: Everything and everyone in my life!!!
Eva Hasty: I’m thankful for Jesus Christ. If it weren’t for him none of us would be standing here today for the opportunity to be thankful.
Pat McDonald: I am thankful for my family, good health, my job and my friends. I have a son David who has been in the Military for the past 20 years. His wife and three children have been a source of inspiration to us all. Like all military families separation is the hardest and they have all been supportive even when it means being separated for long periods of time. David and Tammy are now living close to the rest of the family and it’s been nice having them so close. David has just re-enlisted for another four years. I am so proud and thankful for his service to his country. We have to all be thankful for our military men and women.
Jillian Stansell: I’m thankful for my family, my co-workers (who keep me sane and make me laugh), my job, my friends, and my health.
Janet Alford: I am most grateful to have GOD in my life. Without GOD I would be nothing.
Bonita McCarthy: I am thankful each day that I wake up to see a new day and can smile about it.
I am thankful that I have a wonderful son who amazes me all the time, even still today at 25 with a family of his own, which is itself an accomplishment and he is a good kind person;
and lastly, that I have folks, family and friends that love me … and of course, pets too. Things can always be worse or better but my little slice of life is pretty darn good. I feel blessed every day.
Sarah Nguyen: I’m thankful for my new job at Broadspire and feel very lucky to have been selected over other candidates, especially considering this challenging economy right now where everyone is looking for work and some are not so lucky to land a job. I am thankful for my family as they are what I work so hard for. I am also thankful for just the simple things in my life, like food in the fridge when so many others are not so lucky. I have many things to be thankful for this holiday season.
Terry Klausmeier: This holiday season, I am grateful for the love and support received from friends and family upon the premature birth of my twin grandsons, Brady and Patrick. Not due until October 5th, they were born on June 19th and are truly miracles. Special thanks to the loving doctors and nurses who have been by their sides from the very first moment!!
Sarah Nock: My mother and I are both grateful that I was able to spend time with her while she underwent treatment for Non-Hodgkins lymphoma earlier this year. Thanks to the Family & Medical Leave Act, and to supportive co-workers, I was able to be with her for four and a half months, working part-time as circumstances permitted. Her doctors are continuing to monitor her health very closely, and she’s now receiving radiation treatment to supplement the chemotherapy given her during the summer. The time of my mother’s illness was a difficult one, and there are still concerns for her health in the long term, but we give thanks that I was could be in Virginia to help her through the hardest parts of it.
Dorothy Francone: I am thankful that my husband and I survived Hurricane Sandy despite the extensive damage to our residence and loss of material things. We are alive, our family, friends, neighbors, coworkers and employers have all been supportive of us during this trying period.
Leshell Berry: I am thankful to be alive and working so that I can be a blessing to myself and to others.
Halona Lippert: All that life has to offer.
Norma Brown: I am thankful that Jesus Christ died on the Cross for me and most thankful for his grace and mercy. Secondly, I am thankful for my family, my pet (Tank), and friends.
Happy Thanksgiving to our readers in the US, and happy holidays to everyone else!
