BIG’s Blog: Thanksgiving

I almost used the quote below for Labor Day, but the more I read it, the more I saw that the genius of the message was focused around the interior phrase, the opportunity.

We are blessed beyond what we can imagine in this country, even with all our shortcomings and travails. But as Americans, we are always a work in progress, always reaching for the new frontier. And that goes double for the many of us who work in the charitable nonprofit field.

Teddy Roosevelt’s quote goes to the heart of thanksgiving for us; it is a gift worth giving thanks for, to be able to work at what we all love.

Life’s greatest gift is the opportunity to work hard at work worth doing. – Teddy Roosevelt.
