November 2012

A Word from Britney

November, our time to give thanks! 

Each year during November, we are all part of some type of gathering where we break bread and give thanks for the blessings in our lives. In America, we are a richly blessed people. During this special time each year, I reflect over the last year – what has changed, who has come into my life, how am I different, how am I blessing others, and what do I hope to see happen in the year ahead. As I prepare to reflect on these questions, I am utterly astounded over this past year. We have so much to be thankful for. Not only the blessings that have been bestowed upon Initials, Inc., but the individual blessings that come directly through our doors every day – YOU!
As I recount my blessings every year, they always have a common thread – people. The people we come in contact with make our lives rich and full; they help complete who we were meant to be by filling the gaps of our lives. YOU are our joy, our hearts, and it is our privilege to enjoy this amazing journey with you. With deep thanksgiving I thank you for the joy of knowing you and being a part of your life – thank YOU!
•           the act of giving thanks; grateful acknowledgment of benefits or favors, especially to God.
•           an expression of thanks, especially to God.
•           a public celebration in acknowledgment of divine favor or kindness.
•           a day set apart for giving thanks to God.

There's only one you!

November Reflections
Director of Field Strategy & Growth, Pat Sheehan

November is my favorite month of the year. With Thanksgiving on the horizon, we are reminded to reflect upon what’s really important: our parents, spouses, children, grandchildren and special people that influence our lives. During this month take some time to reflect and be thankful for all you have. God wants us to take hold and to act responsibly for all He has provided.

I feel so blessed to be a part of Initials, Inc. and part of your lives. Creative Leader Sue Baucum (MS) recently posted on Facebook a great Joel Osteen quote, "God didn't create any of us to be average. We weren't made to just get by. We were created to excel." I have an awesome responsibility to help you excel. Humbled by this, I want you to know that I am aligned with Initials, Inc.'s core philosophy, There's Only One You! As I travel to LAUNCH Opportunity Events around the country, I am tucking this gratitude and responsiblity in my heart, and I am anxious to meet with you.
