  • Stay thankful, my friends

     Coming up is Thanksgiving, the time of year when the meaning of family manifests itself as we approach another year.

    Over the period of a year things will change, as they always do. So be thankful for what you have today and thankful for those whose courage gives us reason to give thanks.

    Some time during the day, just stop and consider what you have to be thankful for.
