Thankful for: Pitch Black Edition

Thankful for: Pitch Black Edition

It’s really dark in the morning these days. I can’t see anything in my office window now except a reflection of what’s inside.

Still, I am thankful. For the fact that every day is new (56), for the beautiful fall leaves that will be outside my window when the sun rises (57), and for the electricity powering my cozy space heater, lights, and computer (58.)

I am also thankful for:

59. Room to be creative. When Molly and I spent time in Atlanta a couple of weeks ago, I loved seeing the creative office spaces at the Chick-Fil-A corporate offices. Many conference rooms had several wall sized white boards. Many offices had them. So yesterday, I rearranged my office to make space for a new white board.

60. Local team members and brainstorming. We now have half the Weaving Influence team in close driving distance of each other. We are still certainly a virtual team, but I enjoyed 2 (!) face to face meetings this week with team members.

61. Friends visiting from out of town. Lisa, one of my best friends from Chicago, is visiting today with her family. Can’t wait. Our daughters have all been best friends since birth.

Tell me something! What are you thankful for today?

What People Are Saying

  • Dear, sweet Peter gave me an electric lap blanket this week. I am EXTREMELY thankful, and very much in love (both with Peter, and with the blanket!). 🙂 Happy Friday, Becky!

  • Today, I am thankful that somehow, and I’m really not sure how, in God’s divine providence, He introduced us. All I can think of is Jennifer Miller, the queen of networking and master of discernment. So I am thankful for Becky and thankful for Jennifer and thankful that you collaboratee on The Character Based Leader book because it speaks what we all need to hear, what we all need to PRACTICE, even those of us who are not titled, wrapped, and displayed as leaders.

  • I am thankful for the phone call you & I had earlier this week. Divine intervention was apparent when we realized it was three years to the last time we were together, crossing the finish line of the Des Moines Half-Marathon. we’ve crossed many other “finish lines” since then. Despite the fact that we had limited time, and that we hadn’t talked in months, we jumped right back into things as if we never left off. While the end of my week brought an additional obstacle to overcome, my spirits are lifted knowing my Sisterfriends are with me. Luvya!

  • I am thankful for friends and family (and friends who have become family) who support you in your efforts to break out and start a new business.

    • Gayle, I love what I have heard others say “Friends are family you choose for yourself.”
