Many people in the U.S. will be celebrating Thanksgiving this Thursday, so we've taken some time at Jive to consider what we're thankful for. Below, a wide variety of Jivers give you a peak into their passion, their loves and what they're grateful for.
I'll start it off...
My number one. They are the joy in my world, the brightness in my life, what gets me up in the morning. I have the most incredible mini-people (my kids) and I am grateful that we are all healthy and happy and doing well right now, because I know life goes up and down. And my dogs are in this bucket too. The three of them.
I am so grateful for Jive, letting me be the weird wacky self that I am, letting me get work done how I need to get it done. You let me blog my heart out, really from the heart. I get to interact every day with people I truly care about on a tool/system that I love. I can't imagine living/working without all of it! - Libby Taylor
I'm thankful that in my personal life and professional life that creativity is not just encouraged and supported, but expected. It drives me to keep at it and not be afraid to explore the kookier side of my brain. - Becky Young
Thankful for the amazing people in my life. My wife who I refer to as Superwoman, my three kids who are growing at a crazy rate and can at times drive us crazy (yet we still love them dearly) and to my amazing co-workers here at Jive. Thanks for always driving forward and doing so in a positive, productive manner. Our culture is amazing and rocks like no other. - Jason Khoury
Thankful for family, friends and Jivers!!! - Kosheno Moore
Thankful for my friends, family and colleagues. Also, I am extremely thankful for our great customers like BlueLine, HealthStream and Sammons Enterprise that have made me feel like an extension of their team. - Todd Didier
Family, Friends, Jivers (yep you know who you are...No, not you, YOU!), Jive and our awesome benefits, Customers, Sunny Days and Sandwiches. Okay, I'm thankful for the occasional rainy day as well and leftover turkey-day sandwiches. - John Tauzin
Family, Friends and Jivers ... of course, I think John Tauzin said it best.
Here's a snapshot from my nerdy family photo this year that I now have set as my Facebook Cover Photo =)
If I had to pick a 2nd, I'd have to say I'm thankful for a world that is open to the opportunities and innovation that Technology can provide and the fact that I am capable of contributing to that transformation. I cant imagine being as happy as I am living in a world where there was nothing left to invent and fix. Similar to this in the Truman Show,
When they tell him that there is nothing left to explore ... it's already been figured out. That would be a painful version of hell for me. =\
So I'm thankful I do not live in a world where this is the situation. - Ryan Rutan
This day, more than most, serves as my reminder to remain thankful for the things that truly MATTER in my life. I'm thankful for the things that make my heart sing but, most importantly, I am so overwhelmingly thankful for the family I was lucky enough to be born into, the family of dear friends I've managed to piece together over the years, and the people who keep me coming into work every day--I love Jive and love what I do here but, it's YOU--the people--who make this place feel like a family. - Sarah Marx
For those that celebrate Thanksgiving, Happy Thanksgiving! And even if you don't celebrate this U.S. Holiday, let us know what you are grateful for!
