THANK YOU. Although, I like to live with gratitude all year long; it is this time of year that we have an opportunity to take a deeper reflection at the things we have to be thankful for in our lives. It is the people around us that give more meaning to the life we live. I am personally thankful for the many people that I have had the opportunity to serve. I am also thankful for those people who have helped me to help others. Thank YOU! I also thank the various professionals around me that make up what I call my team. Those people who have a particular specialty which allows me to do more, play more and have more in life. I am so very thankful for the people I can call friends who have also helped me grow as a person. Who have helped smooth the bumps, share in laughter and perhaps a meal or two. Of course family. It is family that keeps you on your toes, is there for at any time and often challenges you. A special Thank You to Stephanie and all the kids who are all a blessing. We can certainly choose who we spend our time with and as life goes on we find each tick on the clock more precious than the last. I appreciate the time we have together. Any journey one takes in life has its challenges. As I look around me I am thrilled that YOU have been a part of that journey. May YOU have a blessed Thanksgiving.
