But I’m grateful for an opportunity to pause, and reflect with my family on everything I’m thankful for. After all, it’s gratitude, not gravy, that’s the reason for the holiday.

What are you thankful for this year?

    Our daughter made a milk jug turkey when she was in pre-school, I kept it for a lot of years and only got rid of it when we moved.
