When I lived in Ukraine, I had some of my most memorable Thanksgivings. Thanksgiving, of course, is not a Ukrainian holiday, so we few Americans who wanted to celebrate the holiday had to really make a concerted effort to recreate it in a country without Butterball, Pepperidge Farms and Ocean Spray. The meal became less important than the day shared with friends, giving thanks.
This year, Dmitry and I have had much to be thankful for. Our business continues to grow. We have reliable partners, like Marianne Sweet and Ken Mascia, who provide outstanding advice to our clients. Our broker provides us with fantastic support. We have wonderful clients. And family and friends we love dearly.
We are holding everyone we care about a little closer these days.
Thank you for all of the blessings you have shared with us, and a Happy Thanksgiving to all.
