Senator Dix: Giving Thanks

Tomorrow, families all over the country will be getting together for their Thanksgiving festivities, myself included.

This holiday is a great time to reflect on the year – the ups and downs, the good times and the bad. I am thankful for each and every one of these moments.  The good moments make us appreciate the hard work we put into our livelihoods each day, while the bad make us grateful for the good times a little more.

I am thankful for my constituents and the people who elected me to office. Without you, we would not have been able to accomplish the number of things we passed this last legislative session. I assure you, it was only the first chapter in our plan to move Iowa forward in a better direction.

None of this is possible without the support of those closest to me. I am thankful for my family and the time we get to spend together. As the kids get older, I start to appreciate the times we are together more and more.  Without them, their understanding and encouragement, I wouldn’t be able to go to the Capitol each year to work for each and every constituent.

Please take a few moments this holiday to share with family and friends the many things for which you are thankful. From my family to yours, have a happy Thanksgiving.
