In the United States, we celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow. It’s one of my favorite holidays. This year, I’m cooking for a group of 14, including much of my extended family plus others. I always like to try out a new dish or two, but I learned my lesson about making too many changes to old favorites. Don’t we all have a treasured family recipe that we must have each year? In our family it’s the sausage and apple stuffing that my great-grandmother made.
As I look forward to the holiday, I like to reflect on the many blessings I have in this life: my family, friends and colleagues, my work. Here’s one of my favorite quotes on gratitude from physician Christiane Northrup:
“Feeling grateful or appreciative of someone or something in your life actually attracts more of the things that you appreciate and value into your life.”
For me, it’s a real joy to be able to work in our industry, and I thank all of you for helping to make that happen.
