We have so much for which to be grateful; the list is endless. Every day this month, we each made a hand leaf and listed something we consider a blessing in our lives. I am glad Thanksgiving exists so I can be reminded to feel and show gratitude more often. Happy Thanksgiving! 

"Living in thanksgiving daily is a habit that will enrich our lives and the lives of those we love. We like to be around those who are grateful. They tend to brighten all around them. They make others feel better about themselves. They tend to be more humble, more joyful, more likable." –Joseph B. Worthlin
