|She is taking "fall" too literally.|
It is that time of year to share what we are thankful for...I am thankful for Diet Coke, which helps me through my mornings and afternoons. I am thankful for pet shampoo, which makes my dog smell MUCH better than before. I am thankful for colorful Sharpies that make taking notes in long meetings more fun! I am thankful for Diet Coke, oh wait, I said that already. I am thankful for family and friends (more so for the non-cray-cray kind). I am thankful for the food I eat, the house I live in, the life I have. I could go on and on, but this year, I want to focus on one thing in particular…
I spend a lot of time at work, like most of you, I am sure. I spend more of my 24 hours around 20 people than I do asleep, according to the American Time Use Survey (38 hours at work vs. 35 hours of sleep). We work together to pull off trainings and projects year round, we eat together in the break room, we share stories and pictures of our families, and we share successes and disappointments on a daily basis.
So this year, while I am thankful for my family and friends outside of the SC Campaign, and DIET COKE, I am truly thankful for the people I work with shoulder to shoulder, day in and day out. They are truly my “home away from home” and I couldn’t ask for a better “work family”.
Thank you to you all for what you do throughout the year to help teens in our state!
And Happy Thanksgiving from the SC Campaign!
