GRATITUDE IN EVERY THING
Work, Family, and Future
As I take time to reflect on how gratitude plays into my life, I can’t help but think about the blessings I have. The team here at Central Michigan Roofing is fantastic. I am really proud of the people I work alongside every day. The quality craftsmanship and effort they put into their jobs inspires me. The more we work together, the closer we become, and it shows in the efficiency of our work. If someone is out sick or we’re down a person, our team steps up and helps each other. As part of that team, I am grateful. I’d like to take a moment and thank everyone who has done business with us. Without our wonderful clients, our shop would be just another flash in the pan. They see the quality of work we do and respect the level of service we provide. But what makes it all work is that our clients approach us as partners. That mutual exchange makes all the difference. Even more so, it makes us want to go the extra mile for those clients who appreciate what we do and approach us as partners. It’s a win-win for the contractors and the shop, and it’s what we aim for every day. The more I see success at work, the more I understand my motivation for doing a good job and sharing that partnership.
“I COME HOME FROM WORK AFTER A LONG DAY AND MY LITTLE 5-YEAR-OLD HAS SPECIALLY MADE A BOOKMARK FOR DAD, OR MAYBE WHEN ONE OF THE KIDS BRING HOME AN ART PROJECT THEY ARE REALLY PROUD OF AND SAY, ‘THIS IS FOR YOU!’ I THINK, FOR MOST OF US, THAT IS WHY WE DO WHAT WE DO EVERY DAY. AND FOR THAT, I AM GRATEFUL!” Then there are the moments in life that give you perspective on why you work and what is really important, like when I come home from work after a long day and my little 5-year- old has specially made a bookmark for Dad, or maybe when one of the kids bring home an art project they are really proud of and say, “This is for you!” I think, for most of us, that is why we do what we do every day. And for that, I am grateful!
Thanksgiving is a time for gratitude, but it’s also a time for tradition. Usually, in our family, we’ll pack up our gear in the morning and head out to hunt. This is always something to look forward to, and when we’re done, the whole family reconvenes for a big meal. My favorite is the pumpkin pie, and the kind my mom makes is quite unique. Of course, my second favorite is the turkey! Thank you all for your dedication to our shop. I get to have experiences like this because of you, and I couldn’t be more grateful. I hope this Thanksgiving is a time of joy and thankfulness for everyone. I’ll just finish with this quote: “Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life; it turns what we have into enough.” – Emanuel Herschberger
I like telling Dad jokes ... Sometimes he laughs.
