Giving Thanks

One recent Thanksgiving, my wife and I sat around the table with a small group of family and friends. One of them asked if we could practice a tradition that her family had done for years. Each person shared one thing they are thankful for and we continued going around the table again and again.


I’ve got to tell you, I didn’t expect much from this exercise, but it turned into the highlight of the day. Grandparents to grandkids spoke and it took over 45 minutes. Our entire group was filled with warmth and laughter, reminded of great memories and the gifts of life.


I hope you have a wonderful holiday. But most of all I hope you’ll take time to reflect on all you have to be thankful for. It’ll bring a smile to your face and joy to your heart. And both of these are good for your health.
