Attitude of Gratitude

As the holidays fast approach us, our thoughts quickly turn to turkey, dressing, pie, football games, Black Friday strategy, and Christmas lists.

It is one of the busiest and most stressful times of the year, but also one of the most rewarding as we are able to spend time with family and friends, sharing what we are thankful for.  It reminds us to have an Attitude of Gratitude.  And while individuals usually take time at their dinner tables to share thanks, businesses don’t take near enough time to share thanks with the community that supports them. We wanted to share just a few of the things that we are thankful for this holiday season.

We are thankful for all of the customers that have allowed us to be a part of their lives over the past 62 years – generations of families that have shared memorable moments of first cars, graduation and Christmas surprises, and many other lifetime milestones.  And through our service department, they have trusted us to prepare their vehicles for family vacations and road trips, helping them through roadside disasters and all kinds of unexpected events.

We are thankful for all of our employees – such a great team that has made this organization what it is today.  It doesn’t matter what position an employee holds or what department they work for – we are all equally responsible for making customer service our number one priority. It is such a blessing to have a team of employees with dedication to excellence.

We are also thankful for the support of such an amazing community of Kansas people and businesses.  We are surrounded with the best of both worlds – a growing metropolitan area and people & businesses who still hold tight to small town values.

In the spirit of having an Attitude of Gratitude, we wish you and your family a Happy Thanksgiving and will finish off by sharing a quote by Melody Beattie that we value and have posted around Don Hattan Chevrolet year around …

“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life.  It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity.  It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
