‘Tis the Season…for Gratitude!
We are so fortunate to be partnering with Upscale Magazine. In the December 2018 issue (on stands now), we are featuring a few reasons we are so very grateful. Read below for a snippet from the article and get your copy today!
“I stepped into this year with high hopes and landed in several pitfalls. From life changes in family dynamics and experiencing financial challenge to even loss of friends-each hit me like a hurricane. But I am grateful for it all-the setbacks, the uncertainty of my next steps, the tears. Who would be thankful for tough times? Someone like me.”
“Thank goodness for “framily”! One of my customers has adopted me into her family when I can’t get back to Chicago, and for that reason, I never have to worry about where I will spend the holidays.”
“He has shown me what it really means to love and so much more! He is a true man, a great dad to our girls and the most fun travel buddy one could ever imagine! Terrance, thank you for helping me put things into perspective. Thank you for supporting me in my dreams.”
“This year has taught me that, even though I try, I can’t do it all. Countless persons have stepped in and stepped up so that I can continue to work, get mommy breaks, and live life a little. They have made the load lighter, and that has made all the difference. “
“The one thing that I live by-and challenge you to do as well-is to take the bumps and bruises that life gives us. Never sit in your grief, sorrow, anger, disappointment or whatever too long. You deserve happiness! Find the gratitude in it all. It’s there.”
