If there was ever a time to pause and recognize the happy things in our lives, it’s now: Thanksgiving Eve. My best friend and I have been talking about how important it is to really recognize this holiday before diving into Christmas madness. She’s been talking with her young daughters about gratitude and contentment. I think the word “gratitude” is a tad over-used these days, but it’s no secret that I believe in its power. So before the tryptophan kicks in, count your blessings… there are many.
