Sitting around the dinner table and taking a few moments to share with your family what you are thankful for this year has been a tradition my mother started back when I was young and didn’t know any better. Back then I just believed it to be some corny, annoying ‘chore’ that my mom was constantly making us kids do. Years and decades have passed and I see the value that this exercise has taught me. Little things like this that might not have seemed so significant or important when I was younger have actually shaped the man, son, sibling, husband, and father I am today.
So while you’re sitting around the Thanksgiving table enjoying food and drink with your family and friends take a little time out to say thank you for all your blessings and to all those important people in your life.
PS: Be sure to reserve your Thanksgiving and Christmas turkeys for 2016. Preorders will go on sale in April 2016.
