Giving Thanks this Holiday Season

With the holidays in full swing, it’s time to celebrate and reflect on all we’re thankful for. Although 2009 has been a rollercoaster year, we each have many reasons to be joyful. This holiday season, take time to think about all the things you have in your life, rather than what you don’t. Focus on family, friends, good health, a home, a job, etc. If you look closely, you’ll find you have a lot to be thankful for.

Another thing to be grateful for is the start of a new year. The year 2010 will bring with it a new beginning and a fresh start. Each day is a new opportunity, full of possibilities and hope. So, start dreaming big and reaching for the stars as the new year approaches.

We want to know what you’re grateful for this year. Share your thoughts in the comments section below. From all of us at Express, we wish you a happy thanksgiving.

    Well said. While I’m immensely grateful to have remained employed through 2009, I’m even more thankful for the friends and family who’d be there to provide support and encouragement in the event that I lost my job.
    Here’s to wishing everyone a productive and successful 2010!

    This year, I am thankful for finding a job that I can do at home. In 2008, I was forced to leave a job I loved. I went through a serious illness followed by chemotherapy. Chemo left me with several physical conditions. I had worked my entire life since the age of 15, even while completed my degree. My parents instilled in me a strong work ethic which I carried throughout my career. Despite by my best efforts to stay at my job, I realized that management was out, it was just too stressful and taxing on my physical strength. Thus, I went out on disability. Having worked for so many years, I would get up in the morning and have nothing to motivate me to be a productive member of society. I also became very worried about how I would support myself financially. I finally got up enough courage to go to my state vocational rehab agency. I hooked up with a great counselor who explained the Ticket to Work Program ( and how working part time would not affect by Social Security Disability benefits. From there I found out about JLodge, an employer, who only hires disabled individuals who want to work part time from home. I recently started working for JLodge.
    JLodge was founded in 1999. Since that time, JLodge has become an industry leader for employing college educated, physically disabled individuals who are productive, motivated, and loyal.
    I wanted to share all of this with those of you who might be facing the same situation. If you are want to find more information about available positions, please go to their website:
