As Thanksgiving draws near, I am drawn to reflect on the things in my life that I am thankful for. The past couple years have been challenging. There have been changes in my personal life as well as my professional life. But, through it all, I have had my family and my friends to help me to overcome the obstacles. I have been able to take each of those obstacles and learn something from them about myself. I am grateful for those in my inner circle, for the skill that God has given me to share with others, and for my tenaciousness to keep going when things look bleak. Knowing all this, I am confident that my goals will be reached and that I will be able to give back to my community so that others can benefit from what I have learned and I give hope and encouragement to others who need it. Wishing everyone a wonderful and blessed Thanksgiving!
