Thanksgiving Message

Thanksgiving Greetings

Once again, as we head into the holiday season, I encourage all Wyomingites to think about more than shopping and hectic schedules.

This year, let's REALLY think about Thanksgiving and what is means. Thanks - Giving. Who might you give thanks to this year? For me, and many of you, I'm thankful for family, pie, crunchy leaves (maybe snow by then), turkey, and friends.

I spend time each Thanksgiving thanking God for my health and another year lived with family and friends.

I'm thankful for my staff and all state employees and the service they give to the public. I'm thankful for those who volunteer throughout our communities to give us better places in which to live.

I am thankful for America. Whether the Presidential election went your way or not, let’s be thankful for this great country in which we are privileged to live. And within that great country, can you think of a better state in which to live? This past year, we have enjoyed beautiful Wyoming sunsets, fresh air, beautiful scenery and wildlife, and Wyoming’s wonderful people.

As we begin these next few months full of holidays and activities, I invite you to take a few minutes to reflect and look beyond the hectic and give thanks for the many wonderful aspects of your life.
