Happy Thanksgiving!

Have you thought about what you are thankful for this Thanksgiving?

While most of us don't think about it between a busy day spent watching football and the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade (I have promised myself I will be there someday!) or preparing that evenings feast, we have a lot to be thankful for. Of course, we can all make a list of things that we want and need, but I believe this quote mentions something that we should all ponder.

"If you haven't all the things you want,
be grateful for the things you don't have
that you wouldn't want." ~unknown

As you sit around the dining room table this Thanksgiving, take the time to reflect what you are truly thankful for in life. While you may not have that fifty foot yacht docked out in front of your Mediterranean villa, you do have a roof over your head and a home filled with nourishing food and family. As we speak I am working on granting two wishes through Make-A-Wish. To be able to help these families who have been given something that they did not want, makes me appreciate the things that I do have.

I know that I can speak from experience that today I am truly blessed. My business is growing, I have a healthy family which I could not have said these past couple of Thanksgivings, and a supportive group of friends and family. To top it off, my brother in-law just returned home from another seven month deployment in Afghanistan, just in time for Thanksgiving!


While that quote may be a perfect reminder of what we are thankful for, I think this quote accurately depicts what most of us experience at the Thanksgiving table!
