Gratitude To Last A Lifetime


Happy Thanksgiving!  As I have gotten older, I have begun to realize that Thanksgiving is less about the big meal and more about the people we share the meal with.  It is a day dedicated to giving thanks to the people we love and care about.  Thanksgiving day serves as a reminder to all of us about how grateful we should be each and every day of the year.  Thanksgiving is a beautiful holiday to give others your time, your gratitude, your laughter, and your love.  To share some of my holiday spirit, I have decided to compose a list of fifty things I am thankful for this Thanksgiving and every day of my life.
