While these times that we are all experiencing have been difficult, it has allowed us time to reflect and hopefully understand that there is more to life than worrying about simple things. Probably, many have realized how important it is to spend quality time with those you love and care for, including thou fellow neighbor.


In addition to spending time, I'm sure most have noticed that there is a lot to be thankful for as well. I'm sure most would agree that our medical professionals are tirelessly addressing the influx of individuals affected by this virus and our doing so with no hesitation. In a somewhat similar fashion, our industry and its professionals have stepped up as well. I'm personally grateful for my team all the work my regionals, managers, assistant managers, front desk personnel, maintenance tech, and the janitorial crew have done and continue to do. It takes real character and pride for someone to be working in these conditions, and many are doing it with a smile.


When the time allows, it is vital that we take note of these efforts, and we do what we can to thank them for their dedication and support.  Its moments like these that make me proud of being in this industry.
