GRATITUDE CHALLENGE NUMBER 4 - I AM GRATEFUL FOR FAMILY

By
Education & Training with Performance Development Strategies

Family is a very important part of my life.  I could not imagine not having the support of my entire family.  I am just now thinking of Anna Banana Kruchten CRB, GRI, WLS 's No Could of, Should of..  I am very glad that I was always in the position with my job where I could always put my family first.  No should of, could of here.  I am also following my father's example.  Fortunately, he also had a job where he could be there for all of our activities and great moments.

We have always spent the holidays with family.  Four years ago we enjoyed our Thanksgiving Dinner at the King's Arms in Williamsburg Virginia.  I am also very grateful that we now now have homes so that we can be with family in both places.  We enjoy the Christmas holidays here in New York and then on New Years we are in Florida with the rest of our family.  Here we are this January 2019, with my sister, brother, and brother in law.

Dinner at Sailors Return Stuart Florida

We are glad to being living near our children but are also able to spend time with the rest of our family living in Florida.

Now, why do parents want to live close to their children?  So I have saved the best part of this gratitude post for last.  Phyllis and I are expectant grandparents.  In March 2020, we are expecting our first grandchild from our daughter Ashley and son in law Tom.  We are so excited!

The has been the 4th and last post for the Thanksgiving 2019 Gratitude Challenge from Debe Maxwell, CRS and  Margaret Rome, Baltimore Maryland .

Hi Grant Schneider,

Congratulations!  What a wonderful surprise.  You will be so happy to be grandparents. You reminded me that both my boys were born in June and we announced each of their births on Thanksgiving with the whole family present. It was wonderful.  I am so very happy for you and Phyllis.

Good Afternoon Grant,  Congratulations!  That is certainly exciting news.  You have the best of both worlds - being able to spend time in New York and in Florida.   Looking forward to seeing those baby pictures.  Happy Holidays!
