As I began writing my annual Thanksgiving blog, an associate gave me a wonderful gift. It was timely, powerful, and the perfect reflection of my hope for all of us this holiday season. I am pleased to be able to pass this gift on to each of you.

What is it?

It is a quote from G. K. Chesterton.

“When it comes to life the critical thing is whether you take things for granted or take them with gratitude.” – G. K. Chesterton


It’s fantastic to be surrounded by people who take things with gratitude. That’s one of the things I appreciate most about my own family and my Employment Technologies family. This Thanksgiving my wish is that we are able to share and impart some of that gratitude to each of you.

I know your time is valuable, so I will not take you or your time for granted. That’s why I’ll keep my message short.

This season, let’s reflect on our blessings as we all share in the Thanksgiving gift of gratitude.

Happy Thanksgiving!
