What are you thankful for?

The trees are bare, cold weather jackets are on, and the first snow has fallen. This can only mean one thing: the season of Thanksgiving is upon us 🍂

Elevator Up will be closed on Thanksgiving and the day following. It truly is a treat to work for a company that recognizes two days off for the holiday. Mandating an extra day off from work removes the choice between spending the day working or continuing to relax with family. When the company gives an extra day to its employees, they are empowered and encouraged to engage in a healthy work/life balance. Needless to say, we’re fortunate to work for a company that values our well being and cares that we receive this important downtime.

As a company, we’re thankful for our clients. They believe in us and trust us to help them with your business, products, and projects. We’re so grateful for them and for the opportunity to work with each and every one of them. We’re also thankful for our friends and our mentors in the community who push us to grow and inspire us. And, of course, we’re thankful for each of our incredible employees who are motivated to do their best, to continue learning, to work together, and show up each day to do their best work.

I am thankful for my beautiful family and friends. Without them, there would be no one to celebrate life and the holidays with. I’m thankful for all the love and support they’ve given me to get where I am and to become the person I am today 💕

For God’s grace ✨ For my beautiful wife, strong boys, and adorable baby girl. For the ability to work and earn an income. For all the liberty and prosperity given to us by being citizens of the United States. For the support of my friends and co-workers.

I feel thankful to have the opportunity to celebrate the holiday with my husband, kids and some of our closest family members. I appreciate that our basic needs are always met, that we have a perspective that allows us to recognize how fortunate we are, and that my kids make me laugh at least once every single day 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

I’m thankful for my wife, Jodi 👫 She’s such a great listener, encourager, and supporter of mine. She’s able to find joy in everyday things with a contagious laugh that pulls people in while also being able to push people forward to reach their full potential.

We hope you’re able to take some time to relax this holiday season. But, if you’d like to share what you’re thankful for this year, we’d love to hear it!
