It is hard to believe that it’s already November and Thanksgiving is quickly approaching in what has turned out to be a crazy year. Historically Thanksgiving has been celebrated as a day of giving thanks for the harvest of the previous year. This tradition is marked in many countries including Canada, Brazil, Germany, Japan, Grenada, Saint Lucia and more.
Showing gratitude is even more meaningful and important this year. A tradition carried on by many families is for each person around the dinner table to share something they are thankful for from the previous year. The craziness of 2020 has revealed many simple, everyday things we may have taken for granted but now realize we should always be thankful for.
For me personally, I have a new appreciation and sense of gratitude for those who work in the medical profession. While we should always thank our doctors, nurses and first responders, those who continually serve others even in the face of danger are truly amazing. I am also especially thankful for teachers, another category of people who are entrusted with huge responsibility even as their roles in society have been altered this year. And I’m sure at the top of many people’s list of things to be thankful for is the freedom to go outside, congregate and engage in human interaction…something that many of us have taken for granted at one time or another. More than ever before, the importance of health and family has been realized as something we all must cherish.
Despite the ups and downs of 2020, William Means Real Estate is about to end the year with our highest sales total in company history. We are extremely thankful for our amazing agents, hard-working employees and of course our wonderful clients who have made it all possible.
Here is to a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and all that we have to be thankful for each and every day.
