Although I will not be with my family this Thanksgiving, that doesn't mean that I won't be thinking of them. Each and every one of my family members holds a special place in my heart and today I will give thanks. I have been blessed with a family that supports, loves, and encourages me in more ways than I can count. If you are blessed enough to be sitting around the dining room table today with your family, say an extra prayer of thanks for all that they mean to you. And if like me, you are not with your family may you find joy in the blessings you do have, even if they are far away this holiday season.
