2020 has been quite a year. It’s been described as “challenging”, “unprecedented”, and “difficult” (please fill your bingo cards accordingly). It has been all of those things, and while I’m not getting together my family this Thanksgiving, there is still a lot to be thankful for.

Friends and Family

I’m thankful for my wife, Callie, and for my dog, Alfie. They are a constant source of happiness. I’m thankful for my parents, my brother, my nephews.

I’m thankful for my friends. I am not the best at keeping up with everyone but I know that if I needed any of my friends that they’d be there, just as I’d be there for them. I’m thankful for our enduring relationships.


This year has been full of ups and downs in the health department for me. I am thankful for my overall health; this year has demonstrated that it is not a given.


The restaurant industry (which Gordon Food Service serves) has taken a large hit this year due to the pandemic. This has resulted in a reduction in revenue and a reduction in staff. I’m thankful that I have retained my job. I’m also thankful that I am able to perform my job remotely.
