Where to begin with this year...it’s been a tough one and I think everyone can agree with us there. We want to thank all of our customers, vendors, and employees who got us through. We asked some of our employees what they were thankful for this year.
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:
I am thankful that we have all survived this year! My husband and I purchased our first home. I’m thankful that through all this chaos we have been able to continue to work.
Monica, Supply Chain Coordinator
I am thankful for my health and my family’s health. It’s been a crazy year for sure. I am looking forward to enjoying this holiday season and being surrounded by loved ones, but definitely looking forward to 2021.
Kelly, Inside Technical Sales Manager/AP Manager
This year I am thankful that God was with both of my parents. My Dad had a brain tumor in December 2019. In April 2020, he had to have a shunt put in, and Dad is progressing wonderfully. Mom was diagnosed this year with breast cancer, but they could remove it without chemo or radiation. So very thankful for my parents! I’m grateful for FAMILY! I already have two grandsons, but this year my Daughter adopted two children, so now I am blessed with a total of four, ages 13, 4, 21 months, and 7 months. I am thankful for my health and that God allows me to get out of bed every day. I’m also thankful for my promotion this year with LD Davis. You are all a great group of people to work with, and I look forward to many more years with you. I am wishing you all a safe, healthy, and wonderful Thanksgiving!
Debra, Customer Service Manager
I’m thankful that none of my immediate friends or family members have succumbed to Corona Virus. I’m thankful that my mother is healthy and going strong. I’m thankful my brother recovered from his heart attack. I’m thankful that I work for such a great company.
Bill, Technical Sales Manager
Wow, this year threw us for a loop. Like a lot of us, I am thankful for my health and family. I am also like a lot of people, thankful for the healthcare workers. My 92-year-old mother (who was on complete lockdown for months) is being cared for by fabulous, selfless healthcare workers. Their dedication is inspiring. I am also thankful for technology. Zoom/Face-Time and how-to videos kept me connected and got me through the lockdown.
Stacey, VP of Sales & Marketing
I am thankful for the health and happiness of my family and for the many good friends that helped me get through the craziness of this year!
I am thankful for my family and friends. I am thankful that I was able to work and get paid through the worst pandemic in history. I am also thankful for customers that would still let me come visit. Even though I wasn’t allowed in their manufacturing facilities, I would be invited to come to sit on their back porches (6 feet apart, of course).
Jeff, Technical Sales Manager
I am thankful that everyone at LD Davis has pulled together throughout 2020 and made the best of a really difficult situation.
Brooks, VP of Operations
I am grateful for all the front line workers, store clerks, delivery services, and safety personnel who unselfishly risked their lives every day to help the families affected by COVID-19. I am grateful to live in a country where I can vote freely and knowing my vote makes a difference. lastly, I am grateful I still have a job with LD Davis during this pandemic and we are staying safe.
Stephen, Quality Specialist
I am thankful that during the challenging economies of COVID, I am able to come to work every day and contribute to the company and provide for my family. I am also very thankful for a backyard where I spent a lot of time in the last few months playing outside with my sons since the playgrounds were closed.
Austin, Research & Innovation Manager
I am thankful for my wife, my kids, and my grandbabies. They kept me going throughout this tough year.
James, Distribution Manager
I’m thankful that 2020 started with a bang for us with the birth of our sweet, beautiful daughter. I’m grateful that I had a girl so that I can not ever have another one! And I’m grateful that I’ve been able to stay healthy and stay working through the madness. I have a beautiful family, awesome coworkers, and friends, and food on the table…what’s not to be grateful for?
Tiffany, Quality Manager
I’m thankful this year is almost over. It’s been a crazy ride.
Pat, Plant Manager
This year with the COVID-19 going crazy, I am especially grateful for my family, friends, my career I enjoy, and my health. I wish everyone a happy and healthy Thanksgiving holiday!
Glenn, National Account Manager
I am thankful for BOOKS! What a better way to spend those sleepy post-feast hours than curled up in your favorite chair with a good book; and please make sure you are reading a hardcover book manufactured with adhesives from LD Davis Industries, Inc.
