Happy Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving is a time to reflect and ponder about all of life's blessings.
Each of us has our list of things we are most thankful for: health, family, friends, the clothes on our backs, the roofs over our heads, a place to call home, and the freedom to enjoy it all.
My most treasured blessings are my family, my friends, my health and my joy in waking up in the morning to the gift of another day. But, without peace and those that devote their time, their energy and their lives to ensure that we have it, our lives would be very different.
This Thanksgiving, when you gather with family and friends to enjoy your day, remember it's not just about the turkey. It's an opportunity to give thanks for the multitude of blessings in our lives and to show our gratitude and appreciation to all the special people in our lives who enrich it.
When you stop to give thanks for all of those blessings, remember to include a thank you for the gift of freedom and the heroes who do their part daily to ensure it.
Happy Thanksgiving to all and enjoy your day.
