Thankful.


by Brandon Steiner November 21, 2012 0 Comments

I’ll start tomorrow off with my left foot forward, for all the people that are left out; that don’t have a place to go, that don’t have a place to eat, that don’t have the right people around them that care about them and love them. And I hope that by this time next year, they’ll have their right foot forward and be on the right track.

I’m grateful first and foremost for the health and welfare of myself, and my family, and my friends, and my employees. That’s the number one thing I pray for and hope for.

I’m thankful that this storm has passed and we’re on our way to recovery. I’m thankful that we were all able to pull together; as bad as the situation was, it could have been a lot worse. I’m thankful for that.

I’m thankful that as bad as the economy was three or four years ago, that it’s actually stable now, and we’re not worrying that the whole economy is about to collapse. Granted, it’s not as good as I want it to be, but I’m grateful that it’s certainly better than it was.

What are you thankful for?

I worked in a kitchen when I was growing up, 80-90 hours a week, at Camp Sussex. There’s a lot of opportunities like this. Is that work nothing?
