Giving Thanks

In honor of Thanksgiving, we asked some of our Bootmaker Bloggers to share what they’re most thankful for.  Enjoy, and then please share: what are you giving thanks for this year?

I am thankful for the start of scuba-diving. This past weekend, I finished open water scuba-diving lessons. I realized how beautiful is the underwater and the damages caused by human beings… although the temperature was quite low, I enjoyed it very much! I would like to say thanks to my coach and diving buddies! Maldives, I am coming!! – Sam

I am thankful for the awareness that the world is full of wonder and awe, and that it is my responsibility to put in, not just take out.  – Jeff

I’m thankful for drive-thru coffee joints especially on really cold, snowy mornings when I’m craving a pumpkin latte but I’m SO not getting out of my car. I’m thankful for the “12 items or less” check-out lines at any store, particularly over crowded grocery stores on Sunday afternoons. I’m thankful for all day Law & Order marathons when I’m home sick or just avoiding my weekend chores.  I’m thankful for email, online ordering, e-banking, driving directions websites (because I get lost going anywhere) and even those pesky social networking sites. And lastly for this year’s list, I add remote controls of any kind … when I can find them. PS – I would be thankful for a remote control car starter if I had one. Hint hint.  – Sarah

I am thankful for great family and all the simple things in life.  – Heather

I’m thankful for the mountains that already have a few trails open for skiing – it’s that time of year!  – Amanda

I am thankful for Thursday and Friday off, and that I don’t care about Christmas shopping.  – Robin

I’m thankful for my wonderful family who provide unconditional love – no matter what; great friends – some of which have been in my life for over 25 years; traveling to foreign countries and seeing what lies outside of New England, and Tripoli pizza – the pizza of the Gods!  – Alyssa

Do you know Steamboat’s gotten 74” of snow so far this season? I’m thankful for that. And bundling into my SmartWool layers, puffy jacket, boots, hat, gloves, and neck gaiter to attend my dog as he romps through the snow mandatorily three times a day? That too. Along with those, I give thanks for my wood burning stove, my YakTrax (the bruise on my butt gives a shout out, too), and managers moving powder morning meetings to the ski mountain.  – Regan

I’m thankful for the Global Stewards who volunteer, above and beyond their regular job responsibilities, to drive our service events and CSR agenda worldwide.  They make such a difference by reaching out to employees in local language to engage them in their communities.  I’m also thankful for my family who remind me to pause and enjoy the moments I have with them.  – Atlanta

I’m thankful the mountains are starting to open!  – Devon
