Thanksgiving day presents us with a wonderful opportunity to express gratitude to our Creator, friends and loved ones. Gratitude for all the blessings in our lives as well as the big ones. For many, Thanksgiving starts the bittersweet holiday ride of coping with illness in the family, the first of many seasons without a spouse, son or daughter, father or mother. Some days are grimmer and darker than others and some days are filled with the tremendous brightness of love and happiness.
I pray and wish for only the brightest and happiest days for all of you and special strength and healing to those who are wrestling with hardships. Travel safe and enjoy these days of Thanksgiving.
