An Attitude Of Gratitude: Kitties, Family And Mr Fix-It

7:00 AM

Over the holidays, we as a company, decided to cultivate an attitude of gratitude and sharing what we are grateful for. It was an inspiring challenge and we looked forward to every day. I know I learned a few new things about my co-workers - many of whom I have worked with for years! We enjoyed it so much, we wanted to share our attitude of gratitude with you here, in a Thankful Thursday blog series. We hope you enjoy hearing about the little and big things we are thankful for

Today's featured employee is Janet Balich. Janet is a Shipping and Receiving Warehouse Clerk.

When asked, "What are you thankful for?" Here is what Janet shared:

I am thankful for my kitties. Bunnie and Sammie are siblings. We have had them for thirteen years. Bunnie is our purr machine. She will follow you until you pick her up and give her a shoulder ride. Sammie is our little lap warmer. Sammie is a little smaller and a little skittish, but she loves shoulder rides too.

I am thankful for my family. I am thankful for my wonderful husband and my son. I am thankful that we all live in Sonoma and it is easy to get together for the holidays.

I am thankful for my husband. I got really lucky when I married him. Mike is such a fix-it man. He loves to help out and he is always giving the neighbors a hand. I am very lucky to have him.
