What does Thanksgiving mean to you?

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams of Central PA RS334568

In August of 2016 my mom passed away. While my siblings and I were sorting through her home, we found this loaf of bread in her freezer that she had baked. I’ll never, ever forget us gathering around my mother’s table to eat breakfast and share this last loaf of her homemade bread. I can still taste the moment and it was one of the most profoundly sacred events of my life. 
Today, as I reflect upon Thanksgiving, I am reminded once again of the abstract aspects of gratitude that cannot be contained by mere words. 

Sending love to each of you, as you personally embrace and define what Thanksgiving means to you.

Good evening Maria Sapio,

You always have a way with words to express the way you live a life of gratitude. I love your story and can identify. My mom was an excellent cook and baker and we always loved her French Bread..to this day every time I make it I think of her. I've passed her recipe to so and they always send me photos and love the fact they are carrying on the tradition of baking it. It makes me smile and remember her more. May you and your family enjoy a lovely Thanksgiving.

Thank you Debe Maxwell, CRS ...I share the same perspective as you, that the joy of Thanksgiving is that it is not a one day occurrence ...it a joy and privilege to embrace the season of gratitude throughout the year!
