When most people think of Thanksgiving, they think about everything that they are thankful for during the past year; however, this year is going to look and feel different to many people. 2020 hasn’t been the year that most of us hoped it would turn out to be when we watched the ball drop at 11:59 p.m. on December 31, 2019.
In this post, you will notice the word thankful mentioned several times to describe the gratitude we feel for the things that have helped us through this unprecedented year. Many will be thankful for their family – siblings who have always been there, aunts and uncles who will go out of their way for us, grandparents who always have a story or lesson to share, parents who never let you down, and countless other people who have made a difference in our lives. Many will be thankful for their children – sons or daughters who bring a smile to our face and a tear to our eye every day. Many will be thankful for their friends – our chosen family. The people who are there when we want to share a laugh or need a shoulder to cry on.
One of the things I am personally deeply thankful for this year is my employer, Christensen Law. Many workers and employers are struggling during this difficult year, so I wanted to recognize the efforts my firm has made to make 2020 easier for not only their clients, but their staff as well.
When many employers needed to lay-off people or close their doors, Christensen Law did everything they could to keep the office running and continue providing clients quality service. They promote safety by allowing employees to work remotely and make sure everyone is equipped with the tools they need to work from home efficiently and comfortably. It has been a privilege and an honor to work for Christensen Law for over the past three years. I have never worked for a firm that cares as much about their employees as they do about their clients. Not many employers would hold an annual holiday decorating contest and allow their employees to dress up on Halloween, send wreaths to employees to decorate together via Zoom to celebrate Christmas, or encourage and reward giving back to the community – just to name a few things that sets Christensen Law apart. David and Leslie Christensen have made every employee feel like family.
During these uncertain times, I wanted to take the time to show how thankful I am to my employer, Christensen Law, for keeping our team safe and well-cared for during this incredibly difficult year.
