Thanksgiving 2009: Counting Our Blessings

Before we all leave the office to baste our turkeys, watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade or search ads for Black Friday deals, we wanted to take a couple minutes to recreate a moment from our pre-Thanksgiving pitch-in.  It might be a little cheesy, but we’re all very thankful for so much in our lives this year. Here’s a quick look at what our Indianapolis team will be thinking of this holiday weekend:

Chantal: I’m thankful for my friends and family…especially my adorable nephew, Dreyton!

Brooke: I’m thankful for having an awesome job, and having such a supportive and loving family.

Ashley: I’m thankful for my new home and a loving circle of friends and family… and chocolate.

Mendy: I’m thankful for my family, friends and all the folks at BLAST. It’s great to not only enjoy your job, but also the people you work with.

Patrick: I’m thankful for my parents always being so supportive and helpful!

Ryan: I’m thankful for family, my beautiful wife, and my health.

Lindsey: I am thankful for my health and wealth, and my two sweet kiddoes.

Hillary: I’m thankful for my family – Just took a trip to watch my “little” brother play college ball and couldn’t be more proud! My family is healthy, happy and has great times together. It’s a great feeling and I am truly blessed!

Kiersten: I’m thankful for my great support-system of family and friends, my job, and the Indianapolis Colts!

Margie: I am thankful for a wonderful family, amazing friends, and my FABULOUS BLASTmedia colleagues.

Kelly: I’m thankful for all the great people I work with.

Heidi: There are so many blessings I am truly thankful for including… an awesome God,  family, friends, food & shelter, my dog, good health, our freedom, work that is interesting, the beauty of nature….

Carey: I’m thankful for my fabulous husband (Thanksgiving is our two month-iversary!), a great group of family & friends and my health. Of course, I am also very thankful to work at BLAST with such fun & talented people… especially Heidi, our resident masseuse who gets the knots out of my neck!

Our office’s resident turkeys – they arrived courtesy of Kelly just in time for Thanskgiving, and they’re thankful that they still have their giblets! Or do they? What are giblets anyway?
