Thanksgiving and the Meaning of Life.

Kevin Romeo here.

Today is Thanksgiving Day here in America.
I have much to be thankful for at Rhino Media Productions.

I am thankful that we have such an incredibly talented group of people at Rhino Media.

I am thankful for Dan Martinez and his willing heart, hard work ethic and passion for growing.
I am thankful for Angel Arnold for her sweet disposition, can-do attitude and ability to learn anything.
I am thankful for Jessica Ulman for her commitment to growth, her honesty and her integrity.
I am thankful for Jeremy Angeletti for his sense of humor, willingness to serve and his passion for excellence.
I am thankful for Tori Gebolys for her comic relief, her humble heart and her creative mind.
I am thankful for all of the interns (Collin, Marlee, Aaron, Grant) who share their time and their lives with us at Rhino Media (parking cars, editing videos, gripping on set, taking garbage out, etc :) )

I am thankful for my wife, Anna, because although she doesn't work for me (which she's thankful for), she is very gracious and patient with my insane schedule.

Mostly I'm thankful that I get to do something I love after several years of wandering and trying to understand why God put me on this earth. Ironically, I now understand that even though I am vocationally fulfilled, Rhino Media does not justify my being on this planet. I have Jesus Christ to honor for that.

This means that I know that what I get to do is a gift. I know that I am not the ultimate captain of this ship and this means that I will not be crushed if or when the day comes that Rhino Media is no longer sustainable.

I have worth because I was created. That's it.

I believe that we are not accidents and the things say and do actually have significance. And this greatly changes my view of the world and people in it.

Hopefully our company continues to grow and prosper and provide jobs and all sorts of meaningful things for those involved. But if it doesn't, it is not the end.

Enjoy your turkey (or Tofurkey for you veggies), family and friends today. Love to everyone.
