Up early to go over a presentation for work and while sitting here wishing sleep could have lasted longer I was stuck by a moment of gratitude for my job. So easily how one makes a living can be taken for granted, especially when it’s enjoyable (well most days, for the most part). I work for a good, family owned company and with a local staff I enjoy. We’re an eccentric and electic group of talented people who accomplish what many could not. Lots of folks are not so lucky. Either they don’t like what they do, the company the work for, the people they work with or worse yet, don’t have a job.
I am blessed and expressing thankfulness is important, especially just a few hours before I stand before the board of directors to present the results for the year so far. Being grateful goes a long way in settling a person’s nerves!
There are no menial jobs, only menial attitudes.
