The folks here are Adafruit would like to wish each and every one of you a Happy Thanksgiving! We would also like to thank you for the support – we’re excited to keep growing with you.

To celebrate Thanksgiving this year we wanted to focus on all that we’re thankful for, so we asked our team to share! You can see their responses below.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Grateful for all the opportunities that shined through when things got rough.. and I am most thankful for all the love and laughter shared with friends and family

i’m thankful each day for the opportunity to help people and see them thrive.

I’m thankful for my cat and my leather jacket. They both keep me warm when the world is cold.

I’m thankful for the heath that I do have and the positive people i’ve been blessed to meet this year.

This year has been a tough one. I think we have all felt that collectively. So as I reflect, I am most Thankful for my son who at 4 can sense when my heart is weary and gives me a hug or toddler drooly kiss. I am thankful for my husband who gives me space to be myself and loves every ounce of who I am. I am thankful for my friends who have become my family. And I am thankful for my work framily who is accepting, kind and fun.

I am thankful to be a member of the Adafruit team working on the the Adafruit mission, to have a home and a wonderful spouse and cuddly critters, and to have friends that make the world a better place and put a smile on my face.

Biodiversity means more than just different plants and animals. It also means humans with different beliefs, different perspectives, and differences of opinion. No matter what the future holds I’m thankful for knowing this little blue-green marble of ours floating in space is replete with biodiversity! (And all the better for it.)

I am thankful for my mother, sister, Barack & Michelle Obama , Beyonce and Prince may his soul rest in peace.
