Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Thanksgiving has to be one of my favorite holidays and possibly is my favorite of them all. I know a lot of people will favor a holiday like Christmas or maybe New Year’s Eve or Day, but I feel that Thanksgiving is the one holiday that transcends to just about everyone and is the holiday where all can effectively pause, get together with those they care about, and celebrate life.  Regardless of your religion or preferences, we can all give thanks for what we have, remember what or who we’ve lost, and value one of the few days on the calendar where there are no motives, where most stop working and maybe a more appropriate focus takes control of our time, and where love, prayer and togetherness trump hate, isolationist thought and pettiness.

There’s plenty to be thankful for, this thanksgiving, and I hope that everyone has the ability to look around them and realize that. I hope that you all have a table full of food and family to celebrate with, and I wish you all the health and happiness we’ll all need to make it to this season, next year.

Take care!
