Give Thanks

As we think about the holidays and the recent celebration of Thanksgiving, we give thanks.  We give thanks for so very much… and even more than we really thought about before… We are thankful for the relationships that we have with the people we hold dear.  We are thankful for family and friends – new and old – and those yet to be made.  We give thanks.

This wild roller coaster ride reminds us to give thanks for family, friends, and community.  Without each other what a lonely world this would be. Thank you.

Stay Calm & Give Thanks!
