In December, we held our 22nd Holiday Dinner, and had a blast! We held a Rock ‘n Roll Happy Hour to celebrate, enjoyed classic rock trivia, name that tune and even co-created a song with everyone helping with the tune and the lyrics (of course we had professional help here). Unfortunately, we weren’t able to be together in person, but fortunately, we were able to have a lot of fun virtually and spend time with each other, and all our families, together. It warmed my heart, and I am so thankful we had the chance to celebrate together.
It’s certainly been a crazy year. Another year full of tragedy, strife and challenges. Also, a year full of people across the globe pulling together to help one other make it through. As a company, I am so proud of our team, our people and our culture that each of us owns and tries to live every day. We all pulled together, and we grinded our way through the challenges of this past year. We worked hard together, we struggled together, we laughed together and we soared together. We did it together.
As we enter 2022, a year we all hope will be markedly different and better, I know I need to take the time to be present and to be thankful for all the positives we’ve lived through, amidst this crazy year. I also encourage all my industry friends and colleagues to do the same. We are making progress, we are making a difference, and we all have many things for which to be thankful. All we have to do is take the time to think of them, and the floodgates of good things will come pouring through our hearts and our minds.
