Be Thankful – 2019

This year, Spectrum Healthcare Resources celebrated the first “Be Thankful” campaign. Participants were asked to submit entries of what they were thankful for this year for a chance to win Spectrum goodies and to be featured on our social media channels.

This year’s winner is Laurie Mrad, Credentials Supervisor (pictured below)! Here is her full submission:

“This is what I’m thankful for. These are my two dogs, Mika and Asia. I had this picture made into a mouse pad that I keep at my desk. Anytime I’m stressed all I have to do is look down at my mouse pad.

These two little girls have shown so much unconditional love that I’m not sure what I would do without them. Every year I write a Christmas song (or part of one) that involves my dogs and I put it in my Christmas Cards. Here is part of the song I wrote about these two last year (sung to Joy to the World):

Joy to the World

Mika came home

She’d run right out the door.

Searched thru fields & floods, rocks hills & plains

To find her standing there

Right at the front door.

Oh Mika, Oh Mika don’t run anymore


Joy to the World

Asia has a toy

She’s got it in her mouth.

She wanders through the house, squealing like she’s hurt

But she’s happy as can be

She comes and sits there at my feet

Oh Asia, Oh Asia you’re just so sweet

Once again I have had times where people in my life may let me down but my dogs have NEVER let me down!!! I am thankful every day for the love and affection that they give me.”

Thank you to all who participated and shared with us this year!
