The leaves are turning colorful shades
Of orange and red and more.
And it’s always around this time of year
I think of what I am thankful for.
As always I’m glad my family and friends
Put up with my antics and quirks,
But I am also extremely grateful
For quite a few things at work:
Counting down from number five
I often share with excited inflection
I’m thankful that 70 percent of our members
Join one of our 31 Sections.
Number four involves pro bono
Now printed but first written with quills.
I’m thankful this year our YLD
Provided local heroes with over 700 wills.
And most of my fellow attorneys
Can probably relate to number three.
That’s because I am thankful that we offer
The vast majority of our state’s CLE.
A close second to first are Member Events
Where we gather for shows and tailgates.
Just last week over 200 folks came out
To watch football between Wake Forest and State.
And finally rounding out my list
At a merry and festive number one,
I’m thankful over 130 fellow members to-date
Have signed up for our Ugly Sweater 5k Run!
