Thanksgiving is a national holiday celebrated primarily in the United States and Canada as a day of giving thanks for the blessings of the harvest and the preceding year. Many places around the world observe similar celebrations. This is the time of year we focus on giving thanks for the joys and blessings in our lives.
I give thanks for my husband, George, my parents, sisters, nieces, nephews, and other family members, my friends, and my animals, especially Scooty and Benji. (For those who know me well, I’m a fierce animal lover.) Freedom, nature, clean air, a warm home, and food on my table … I do not take any of these things for granted.
While I’m grateful for all the good things in my life, I can look back and feel a sense of fulfillment for the disappointments and difficulties, because I have grown from them. I appreciate all of you who read this newsletter; you make my efforts worthwhile. Thanks also to all my colleagues at PennWell for their assistance in the production of this newsletter – Meg, Mark, Craig, and others.
While we can all get caught up with holiday meals and shopping, try to focus on the true meaning of Thanksgiving – giving thanks. I know I will…
I wish all of you a Happy Thanksgiving.
