Parades, marathons, football games, Thanksgiving dinners – all are the traditions we cherish…..let’s not take it for granted. Thinking about our abundant blessings and how they impact others that we love – is an important part of this holiday time. So – as we to through these annual mores, let’s remember to give thanks & remember to touch another life with a gift of grace, mercy or loving care. Give, volunteer, lend a hand, bring a dish to share, or simply give a smile or hug to someone…….enjoy the joy!
