I sure hope everyone has a wonderful Thanksgiving! For most of us, it is a much needed long weekend to cook, eat, shop and have time with family and friends and to hopefully squeeze in some time to rest and to reflect back over the year and to be reminded of the things we are most thankful for. I hope this holiday finds you all able to do the same!
