Thanksgiving is a special holiday in my heart – no lights, no costumes, no firecrackers, no gifts. It is simply a day that we pause to be with family and friends to share their company and to give thanks for all we have.
While we each face our share of sorrows and distress as we travel through life – we each have blessings as well. It is important to be grateful for what we have today – not what we wish for tomorrow. We must take the time to treasure our friends, cherish our family, and to express gratitude for our lives.
Those of us who live in Northern Michigan are so very fortunate to live in one of the most beautiful places in this country. I have lived here now for sixteen years. I am thankful every day for the gift of this wonderful town on the bay and the friends that I have made who make my life richer.
Today, take the time to stop for a moment – consider your blessings and give thanks.
