With Thanksgiving mere days away, and the onslaught of holiday scrambling lurking just around the corner, what better time to take a deep breath and reflect on the blessings in your life? Sure, there are things that make holidays stressful, but grab a quiet moment before all the craziness starts to truly consider what makes the holidays special. Because despite what we are fed by media and merchandising, the most important gifts we can give our family and friends are our time and love; those magical, intangible, immeasurably important elements that bind our hearts and lives together in strange and beautiful ways. So give your blessings a quick count before you down that turkey and skip out to the mall... or maybe skip the mall and spend a little more time with those you love, because memories are gifts that last a lifetime!
Wishing you all a blessed and Happy Thanksgiving!
