Another year is ending and I think many of us will be happy to see it all behind us in the rear-view mirror. But even looking back on a less than perfect year, I find so many good things that I don’t know where to begin. Every time I sit back and begin to reflect on this last year, I am flooded with gratitude for our students and the people I work with to help change people’s lives one person at a time.
Here are a few more of the things I’m thankful for this year:
1)My wonderful wife of more than 21 years. Her birthday was on Thanksgiving this year. There hasn’t been a single day since then when I wasn’t thankful that she married me. Julie has taught me so much about what real love and I appreciate the joys of our life together.And our faith in Jesus Christ, the plan of redemption. Our faith in Jesus Christ has and will continue to guide us through tough times.
2)Each of my children and extended family all over the world.
One of the greatest privileges of working at Prosper is that people share fears, their failures, their dreams and their hopes with us. Yet the most wonderful part for me isn’t just the trust involved in these conversations, but the joy of their success that changes lives in a deep meaningful way. So, I look back with happy thoughts and look forward to the great challenges that will help me grow. It reminds me how important faith, family and friends are to me.That is why, I do my best to create positive memories with the family and friends that ARE still here.
