Happy Thanksgiving! What We Are Thankful For

Happy Thanksgiving! What We Are Thankful For

November 08, 2022

Before the busyness of the holiday season fully sets in, now is the perfect time to pause and take stock of all we have to be grateful for. With the dramatic events of the last two years, many of us were hoping that 2022 would be a fresh start. But even though this year has brought its own set of challenges and it would be all too easy to focus only on the negative, this Thanksgiving season, we are choosing to cultivate a heart of gratitude and acknowledge the many things we have to be thankful for. 

Family & Friends

Family and friends probably tops the list for most of us, but in this season especially, we are reminded of how much family means and the importance of surrounding yourself with people who know you, love you, and support you. 

No matter how busy we are or what life changes come our way, family and friends are vital to our well-being. At Anderson Financial Strategies, we are incredibly grateful for the community that surrounds us, and we are privileged to consider many of our clients as friends as well. 


This year brought shocking geopolitical events with the Russian invasion of Ukraine. Now, more than ever, we are reminded how privileged and blessed we are to live in a prosperous and free country. There are many people all over the world who long to live here, and we are lucky to have the opportunities this country affords, no matter how divided our country may feel at times. 

A Chance to Serve

For us, one of the most important parts of our lives is joining you on your journey and serving you as you pursue your goals. It is truly our joy to celebrate with you when you reach a milestone and support you when life gets shaky. 

There aren’t many people who can say they get to go to their dream job every day, so we are incredibly grateful that we get to do just that, providing education and support for so many families in our community who are on the road to a confident financial future.

As we reflect on all we’re grateful for this year, we want to make sure to thank you, our clients, for choosing Anderson Financial Strategies to guide you in your financial life. We are grateful for the trust and confidence you give us all year long (and year after year)—we certainly don’t take that for granted. We look forward to continuing to invest in you and your family in the future!

Give Thanks

We hope that your Thanksgiving leaves you refreshed and ready to look forward with hope. Through it all, we are here for you and your family, just a phone call away. Reach out to us at 855-237-4545 with your questions, concerns, or just to touch base before the end of the year. We are thankful for you!
