Grocery stores are full of shoppers buying turkeys and items for the prized Thanksgiving dinner. Many of my friends and family members have started preparing side dishes and desserts. Items that can be frozen and advanced prepared are underway.

As we approach Thanksgiving Day, we have to keep in mind that it is more than the turkey and dressing, potato salad, macaroni and cheese, candied yams, greens and countless desserts. Yum! Yes, the significance of the day is greater than the meal and the family sitting around the dinner table. It is a time to be thankful; a time to count your blessings; a time of reflections. I have so much for which to be thankful; too numerous to count!

Therefore, I ask, “What are you thankful for this Thanksgiving holiday?”
