Are You Really Thankful?

– if you have one make sure that they know you appreciate them.

·         Thankful for your extended family

– everyone has some dysfunction in their family – most of the time it’s comfortable like a nice sweater – worn but familiar – thank them when you see them next

·         Thankful for your children

– if you have them – let them know what an honor it is to be their parent.
