The word gratitude is derived from the Latin word gratia, which means grace, graciousness, or gratefulness (depending on the context). While it is easy to become overwhelmed with schedules, travel and preparation of the traditional Thursday meals, there are tremendous benefits of being thankful during this holiday season and throughout the year.
Below are two articles we found to be appropriate reminders on how to give thanks throughout the year along with the associated benefits of making gratitude a habit.
We would like to take this opportunity to express our sincerest thanks and appreciation to each of our clients, partners, friends, family and loved ones. This has been an exciting year for us at IronBridge, and we are incredibly grateful for everyone in our lives.
We hope you and your loved ones enjoy a safe and happy Thanksgiving holiday.
