Welcome to Friday Feedback!
I hope you had a great Thanksgiving if you are in the US and I hope your Thursday was great if not.
On Wed I attended one of my clients weekly meetings. This client’s owner came from Brazil and has a number of people that live in Brazil working for him. As well as the people that are still in Brazil, he has a number of people that migrated to the US from Brazil working for him.
The subject of the meeting was “What are you thankful for?” I got asked the question late Wed, about an hour before the meeting and not really thinking about it gave a flip answer “I’m thankful for modern medicine.” My family is at the tail end of a cold/flu thing and we got here with OTC meds. My son ended up with a sinus infection, which is being treated with antibiotics. We were all able to reach out and talk to or have an appointment with our doctors within 24 hours of calling.
This is the modern medicine I’m thankful for.
But it is a flippant answer.
A more thoughtful answer is longer.
I’m thankful for living in the United States of America. I’m thankful for living in a country that gave rise to the concept of God given rights over king given rights. I’m thankful for the freedoms I have to protect myself, my family, my community. I’m thankful for the freedom to speak what I wish.
On a smaller scale I’m thankful for all of the readers that have stuck with us as we transitioned from Miguel’s blog to Miguel and J.Kb’s blog to where we are now.
So today’s question for you all:
What are you thankful for? Be it big, be it small, what are you thankful for?
