Happy Thanksgiving

Strong Thanksgiving

My favorite thing about Thanksgiving is it’s a holiday that gives you time to reflect – remembering and reflecting on the things that you are truly thankful for and counting your many blessings.

If you are like me, some days are so busy that you often forget what day, week or even the month you are in. You find yourself simply trying to complete the task in front of you. But Thanksgiving is very different. It’s a time to be with family and friends or spend time otherwise giving thanks. It’s a time to think about the past and have promise for what is going to happen in the future. Before the commotion that comes before Christmas, you have a chance to truly enjoy the things in this world that matter the most to you.

This year I am thankful for many things but the one thing I am looking forward to the most is spending the holiday with my family. I would like to wish everyone a happy Thanksgiving and hope you enjoy everyone around you during such a special time of year.
