Thanksgiving is right around the corner, and it’s a special time in our country to gather with family and friends, and count our many blessings. One of my favorite things about the holiday season is tradition – those special practices that may be unique to us and our families that have become familiar over time.
At our Thanksgiving dinner, we always try to share something that we are especially grateful for before we begin our meal. Over time, I have come to realize that at the top of my list are always the people I am surrounded by at the table, family and friends. Close family and friends (some of whom have become family) are what’s most important for me, followed closely by good health, a comfortable home, delicious food, and all the myriad gifts too numerous to list here. It’s a time for a gratitude check-in, to acknowledge what we sometimes take for granted.
So at this time of reflection and gratitude, let me express my thankfulness for all of you – family, friends, clients, and community. I am blessed to have each and every one of you be a part of my life, and I know that. One of the most important components of health and longevity is our relationships, our connections to others. This Thanksgiving please know how grateful I am for you – for your friendship, your place in my life, your support, and for taking the time to read these words.
I wish for you and yours a Happy Thanksgiving holiday, filled with all the good and love your heart can hold.
