Eileen's Lesson:
As Thanksgiving approaches, it's a great reminder for us all to take time to be thankful.
My grandmother made amazing food. For the holidays, she would make fresh fish.
When I say fresh, I mean really fresh. So fresh that she would buy the fish live, and then store them in her bathtub until she was ready to use them. Which was a great idea until someone needed to use the bathroom and hadn’t been pre-warned.

My grandmother passed away a long, long time ago. However, as the holidays approach, I’m thankful to have such amazing memories like this one from my family.

What am I thankful for today? My amazing husband, children, my wonderful employees, clients and extended HR Team family. Thank you for being a part of The HR Team for the last 22+ years.

Happy Thanksgiving!
