It's hard to believe that another year is coming to an end, and with it comes a new decade!
As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, we like to take a moment to appreciate all the reasons we have to be thankful - not just today, but everyday!
I sat down with some members of the LD Davis team to see what they were thankful for this Thanksgiving.
Here's what they had to say:
"What I am thankful for is family, clean air, parents, music, health, sunshine, Sunday sleep-ins, pets, freedom, weekends, the opportunity to learn something new everyday, the first signs of spring, and to be alive!"
Chris, Receiving Manager
"This year I am thankful for the love and good health of all my family and friends. Also, thankful Carson Wentz is not hurt this season!"
Kelly, Inside Technical Sales Manager
"I am thankful for family and friends. Also, I am thankful for the advancement opportunity in my career at LD Davis. I love working here and ALL my coworkers are great to work with! We have a great group and I am excited on what the future holds for all of us at LD Davis!"
Amy, Office Manager
"I just recently went on a vacation with 3 high school buddies and their wives. I’ve known them since 1977. I’m thankful for all the relationships I have kept in my life. Family, friends, and now, coworkers and customers I can call my friends."
Bill, Technical Sales Manager
"I am thankful that my family will be all together for the day. Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday."
Stacey, VP of Sales & Marketing
"I’m thankful that I was able to marry my best friend this year. I’m also thankful for my family and that I am able to work with a quirky group of people every day. Also I’m thankful Machine Gun Kelly released an album this year 😊 ."
Monica, Supply Chain Coordinator
"I am thankful for my wife, children, and family. I am also thankful that I have a great job working with great people and that job allows me to develop friendships/relationships with customers/friends all over the country. It is awesome."
Jeff, Technical Sales Manager
"I am thankful for the mornings I am afforded to be in the hunting woods and able to watch nature wake up."
Pat, Plant Manager
"I am thankful that there will only be 23 more days until 12/21 – and then the daylight will increase."
Brooks, VP of Operations
"I am thankful for my health (especially since I am the eldest at LD Davis!) my wife and all my family. I am thankful I can play soccer, b-ball, Frisbee golf ,ping pong, corn hole and ride bikes, run on the beach, etc with my grandkids/kids!"
Stephen, Quality Specialist
"I am thankful to be one of the newest employees to the LD Davis Monroe, NC office. Thankful for a sweet lady that didn’t really know me but stuck her neck out for me, gave Brooks my resume and then that Brooks, Amy and Pat interviewed me and thought I would be a good fit for the team. Thankful for each and everyday that God allows me to get out of bed, for my health, roof over my, head, clothes on my back, a car to drive and a great place to work. I’m most thankful for a husband that loves me even when I’m unlovable. And last, but definitely not least, I am SO THANKFUL for my two grandsons: Trevor, who was born early at only 3 ¼ pounds and 16 ¾ long but is in great health and has been wide open since he came out of the womb and will be 3 in December, and Brantley, who also came early and weighed a 5 lbs who is 9 months and I think if he would have been first they would have never had a second child, LOL. They are definitely my heart."
Debra, Senior Customer Service Representative
"I am thankful for the wonderful people I work with, for the new friends I’ve made this year, and for my family’s good health and happiness!
I am also thankful that Tripp brought his new puppy in to meet the office today! Daisy is sooooo cute!!"
To piggyback on what Tripp was grateful for last year, I am grateful that my husband did NOT have a vasectomy and that after about 3 years of trying, we’re finally expecting our own little lady. I’m grateful for miracles, family, friends, and a job that is as fun as it is challenging (and the new challenges I’ve had bestowed upon me). I’m also still grateful that Pat is gone hunting a lot in the fall hahaha 😝"
Tiffany, Quality Manager
"My heart is so full this Thanksgiving. Not only will I be spending it with my family, but this will be my baby girl's first turkey day. I can't wait! Also, I'm hosting Thanksgiving for the first time ever this year, so I'll be EXTRA thankful if I don't burn the turkey, and have to order pizza for everyone! Wish me luck!"
Maria, Marketing Manager
"I am grateful for my health, family, friends, customers and our wonderful team at LD Davis."
Glenn, National Account Manager
"I am thankful for: The moment when I wake up and realize it was just a nightmare. I am not back in college taking a Calculus II test that I did not study for and if I do not get at least a C+, I will not graduate."
Above all, we are thankful for YOU - our customers, partners and friends. Thanks for taking a moment to check out what we are thankful for this year. Comment below and let us know what you're thankful for, too!
