10 Things To Be Thankful For This Year

The holiday season always makes me reflect. Holidays bring about thoughts of family, friends, work, and life in general. There’s always something to reflect upon.

This Thanksgiving holiday is no different. We’re one day away from spending time with family, friends, or alone. Ouch, if you’re in that last category.
