When I was a kid, Thanksgiving was one of my favorite holidays. But I think Thanksgiving should be one of every kid's favorite holidays, other than maybe Halloween. Unfortunately, as so often happens in today's society, people forget the true meaning of Thanksgiving and the story behind the holiday. When thinking of this holiday meant for giving thanks, unfortunately many folks traditionally think of Thanksgiving week-end with "Black Friday" which is the beginning of the traditional holiday shopping season. Please don't fall into that trap.

With Thanksgiving drawing near I am reminded how very blessed I am. I enjoy family, friends, my volunteer activities, my business and the many warm relationships I have formed through these activities. I hope you'll take a moment and reflect on the blessings in your own life. One of my favorite things about Thanksgiving is getting together with family and friends, and when that is not possible, reminiscing of the past Thanksgivings when I could.
When we count our many blessings;
It isn't hard to see
that life's most valued treasures
are the treasures that are free.
For it isn't what we own or buy
that signifies our wealth.
It's the special gifts that have no price
our family, friends and health.
Happy Thanksgiving to you ....
