2010 – A Year to be Grateful

I realize that many people use Thanksgiving to go over their gratitude list but I tend to think about these things more toward the end of a year as I pause to reflect where I’ve been.

After a meeting this morning where I realized that when I get really busy (like right now as I get 5 new products ready to launch in February), it’s easy to forget that I’m one lucky lady who has a lot to be grateful for.  Here are just a few things that come to mind:

The health and happiness of my family and friends
The ability to own a company where I feel that I make a difference
Great employees who care about my allergic child and the people we serve
A community that embraces small business and is willing to support us
A warm, loving home to come home to

There are so many more I can think of but those are my basics.  I wish you all a wonderful holiday season and may you have many bright lights of your own in 2011.
