As November comes to an end, we find ourselves reflecting on this past semester and what we are thankful for. Whether it is focusing on the people in our lives that have made these memories special or those who have changed our lives forever. Whether we give thanks for the people around us or we focus on the blessing of opportunity, it is important to step back and have gratitude for simply having the moment.
Here are a few things that our River + Stone brand reps had to say:
I’m thankful for…
“For my family. They have been so supportive of me over the past twenty one years and have helped me become the person I am today. They are always there for me when I need a laugh to cheer up, or offer me advice when I need help. They have given me some of the best opportunities and memories and for that I am thankful.” – Kevin Dingelstedt
“For the unforgettable four years I have had at Marist and all of the amazing people I have met here… I’m also thankful that capping is almost over!!” – Katie Kilgallen
“The opportunity I’ve been given to be successful. My family and friends who give me their support and love.” – Matt Mazzoni
“For the opportunities I have been given and all of the people in my life. I am grateful that I get to pursue my passions and also my interests. Everyone is not fortunate enough to have these opportunities, so I definitely do not take anything for granted. I’m also thankful that with my opportunities and connections I can eventually give back and better the lives of those who need help.” – Brian Edsall
“To be able to go home to Puerto Rico for thanksgiving break.” – Lulu Colon-Fuentes
“For my family and their health, for my sister doing well in school and for my brother’s first semester living off campus going smoothly. I’m thankful for the opportunity to move forward and I am excited for what the future has to offer.” – Bernadette Hogan
“To be home with my family this year after being in Europe last year.” – Dan Luise
“For the safety of my family and friends this holiday season! And great food!” – Cameron Smith
It’s a consensus that we are all thankful. We hope that everybody gets a chance to reflect during this break and are thankful for all that they have.
Have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
