Thanksgiving Day

This is the day to stop and give thanks. Give thanks for the family you have, the food you have to eat, your health, the memories you have, and that you are here in the moment to do so.

We have all faced many challenges this last year.

We are all thankful to just be here and count our blessings.



Be grateful for having the ones that are with you; family, friends, and neighbors.

So many times, Thanksgiving Day is just a day before Black Friday or a benchmark for other events or activities.

To me, this day is about family and memories that I have of family.
