Tis The Season

As I drove into Nashville this morning, I began listening to Christmas music and was struck with the natural calmness that this time of year elicits in my spirit.  It isn’t all about Christmas and the reality is if there were good Thanksgiving songs, I would listen to those.  What I was reminded of today was how thankful I am for the little things.  This past weekend, our home was filled with the kind of memories that last a lifetime and extend beyond anything we do in our professional lives. If this weekend was any indication of the next few weeks, this year’s Christmas season will be magical.

Thankful

With all that being said, as I think about Streamline, our clients, and our partners, I am beyond thankful for this past year.  It has been a year that has included new employees, seven new clients, and countless adventures.  While it may sound cliché, I am truly thankful for each of our team members for their work and more importantly who they are and who they are becoming.  I know that we cannot manufacture company culture.  We can lay out the guide or the path but it is up to those individuals to embrace and enhance.  Our team does this so well and I am so thankful to watch us grow as a team.

I love to hear that clients are thrilled with our work and that we deliver on all of their goals, but I equally love hearing Streamline described as “the best job I have had” or a “great place to work.”  I know this is not the case for everyone or every company.   I am thankful for our team that helps make this possible.

Celebrate

As we celebrate today with our families and friends, at the risk of sounding predictable, take a few moments to think about what you have, who you have, and how much we have to be thankful for.  Life is life and is unpredictable by nature.  We have all had challenges this year but have learned to see through the challenges to find the joys and on this day, hopefully that includes turkey, stuffing, and pumpkin pie!

Happy Thanksgiving to all!
