Team Members Give Thanks

The Thanksgiving holiday is our annual opportunity to feast on turkey, catch up with family and friends, watch a little football, get a head start on holiday shopping and of course give thanks. We asked our M Team Members what they are thankful for this year and below are some of their answers.

Nita N.

I'm so thankful for this Thanksgiving because my family is always there to support each other. With all the economic problems, I've been blessed that I still have a wonderful job, family and friends. Thanks to almighty God for giving me these abundant blessings. Peace to everyone and Happy Thanksgiving!

Dorcas F.

DorcasI am most thankful for the strength that my daughter, also named Dorcas, has. She has not had an easy life. She was born with Hirschsprung's disease and had to endure multiple surgeries up to the age of 9 to correct it.

At the age of 16 she was diagnosed with lung cancer and had to have a lung removed. If that wasn't enough, at the age of 20 she had a bout with ovarian cancer and had major surgery. She has been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis and she is only 23 years old.

My daughter has never complained at anytime about what she has had to go through. She has done nothing but worry about how her family was holding up. My daughter works three different jobs and one of those is being a caretaker for others. She lives in Buffalo, NY and never lets the cold bother her.

She is coming to see me in November and as a treat for her I am taking her to Disneyland – her first trip to California ever. As a parent, watching a child suffer is the worst but she has taught me so much and I would be so lost without her.

Ikram B.

I'm thankful for my family, my friends and life. Most of all I am thankful for my job because I was granted a second chance and there are always people who support me.

Victor H. C.

I thank God for my family, my children and the blessing of having such an excellent job. I hope you are able to spend a day giving thanks for your family and everything you have like I am.

Maria A.

This year I am thankful that my sister in Texas is doing better. She has been treated for cancer in her right arm. I am also thankful that all of my grandkids are doing well.

Yadimir S.

I want to say I'm thankful because I have a beautiful family and I have the opportunity to be alive and see my daughter grow up. I have a very good job with amazing coworkers and managers and I have a wonderful God who supports my family and my whole life every single day.

Isabel T.

Fourteen years ago my daughter was born with a heart condition and was given a 25% chance of living. Today she is a strong and healthy child. Eight years ago my husband was nearly killed in a car accident, and today he is much healthier than ever. I am thankful for those things as well as my job, my home, my family and friends. I thank God today and forever.

We would like to wish all our readers a very happy Thanksgiving and a special thank you to our Team Members for their submissions. We encourage you to share what you're thankful for in our blog comments below.
