Thanksgiving is my favorite holiday. Family and friends come together to share a meal and truly give thanks for what they have been given. I love the cliché Thanksgiving activity where everyone goes around the table to say at least one thing they’re thankful for; it makes me take a step back and evaluate what has gone on in the past year. I am thankful for my job, my health, and so much more. Plus, I am thankful for this Thanksgiving feast! This is the meal that just keeps on giving.
