Attitude of Gratitude Reflecting on 2022

As crazy as it seems that we’ve already reached the end of November, here we are! Through the hustle and bustle of the kick-off of holiday season, we asked our volunteers to take a brief pause to reflect on all that they have to be grateful for this year.

We hope as you begin your celebrations you take a moment to reflect on what it is you are grateful for this year. Our CommonGround Minnesota volunteers wish you and yours a very happy and healthy Thanksgiving!

Rebekah Gustafson

This year has been filled with new opportunities and growth on our farm and for that I am very grateful. We said goodbye to the matriarch of our farm and with all the craziness and changes on our operation, I have also become grateful for the quiet and still moments that we can take it all in and enjoy the blessings from the new opportunities.

Sarah Kern

I am grateful for my three healthy children who fill my days and my heart.

Krista Willis

This year I am grateful for my daily companion, our farm dog. She is always close by no matter what I am doing. I’m also grateful for the ability to travel again.

Ellyn Oelfke

I am grateful for the way of life we live. Having the opportunity to steward the land and animals we farm is an honor, and I am grateful to walk alongside my husband in creating an agricultural legacy for generations to come!

Lauren Biegler

So grateful for a successful and safe harvest for another year. Always thankful for my healthy and kind children! Also very grateful for our good health.

Katie Brenny

I am grateful for the opportunity to share the U.S. agriculture story to those in South Africa.
