Thanksgiving is a wonderful time for its simple but powerful purpose of bringing family and friends together to pause and acknowledge the good that is working in our lives. We wish you the best for a fun and warm holiday full of delicious smells, good eats, and time to rest with loved ones. Remember, though, as you head for second or third helpings, to keep things in perspective: A heart full of gratitude is better than a bursting belly!

Happy Thanksgiving!
