That’s What Thanksgiving is All About

       I read a great article in USA Today last week.  The writer, Craig Wilson, mentioned the tendency of Americans to complain about everything.  Having spent most of my career in Human Resources, I’ve seen exactly that.  No matter what an organization gives to employees, they still find something to complain about.  Wilson gave several examples, and then contrasted those with the situation of a 23-year old man who recently won the first season of China’s Got Talent with his piano playing ability.  What’s so great about that?  He has no arms; he plays with his toes.  When asked about his victory, he didn’t complain.  He simply responded, “At least I have a pair of perfect legs.” 

       So remember that this weekend when your football team loses.  Or when you’re stuck in traffic.  Or when you’re fighting the Black Friday mobs for those shopping specials.  It’s time to be thankful for what we do have.  You can enjoy the full article at http://www.usatoday.com/life/columnist/finalword/2010-11-17-final17_ST_N.htm
