Gratitude, noun grat·i·tude \ˈgra-tə-ˌtüd, -ˌtyüd\,: a feeling of appreciation or thanks
Thanksgiving is the “traditional” time of year when we express our gratitude for the blessings of our lives. It is a time when we pause from our "busy-ness" to count our blessings, appreciate our loved ones and take stock of the many good things in our lives. Given the uncertain state of the world, the senior team believe being thankful for blessings – small and large – is more important than ever.
Personally, I am thankful for my family, (especially my new granddaughter and son-in-law!), for my warm home and for being blessed to be a part of Inglis. The senior team and I are especially thankful for each of you – residents, consumers, staff, family members and volunteers alike. Your courage and determination in the face of big challenges and your quiet acts of grace and kindness are an inspiration to us.
Your dedication to making Inglis a bit better every day has enabled us to achieve exceptional progress in our journey from Good To Great. In just the past year, we launched four Person-Centered neighborhoods, opened our Wellness & Rehabilitation Center, enriched hundreds of lives with adapted technology, enhanced our Adult Day and Community Support Services, opened our beautiful Mission Green community and began construction on Inglis Gardens at Belmont.
Most of all, we are thankful for the loving impact you have on one another. You have shaped Inglis into what we are today, and influence what we will become tomorrow. Each year, your determination brings “ability and independence” to life. So, thank you for all you do, every day, to make Inglis a leader in enabling people with disabilities – and those who care for them – to achieve their goals and live life to the fullest.
Happy Thanksgiving to you and your families. It is our pleasure to serve you.
