As the autumn leaves gracefully descend and the air carries a crisp hint of winter, we find ourselves on the cusp of a beloved celebration of Thanksgiving.  In this season of gratitude let us take a moment to reflect on the richness that surrounds us and the attitude of thankfulness.  As I reflect on the hustle of daily life, it’s easy to overlook the small, yet invaluable blessings that grace our path.  Whether it’s the aroma of a favorite meal, the laughter shared with others, the gentle touch of sunlight or moments of the day that bring joy.  Savor the moment, engage in festivities, immerse yourself in conversations, and let the joy of the moment become a lasting memory.  Take time to express your thankfulness to those around you.  A simple “thank you” can brighten someone's day and deepen the connections that make life meaningful.  Share stories, memories, and appreciations.  Let your gratitude be a gift to others.  May your Thanksgiving be filled with warmth, joy, and a heart full of thanks.
