A Time Of Gratitude

As much as I don’t enjoy the lack of sunlight and the end of Daylight Savings this time of year, it does lead us into the holidays and gives us a chance to be grateful and to show our gratitude to others.

Gratitude is the fairest blossom which springs from the soul.

Thanksgiving is the best prelude to the rest of the holidays as it hopefully gives us each time to reflect on all that we have to be grateful for. I know I’m ever so thankful for my husband and family, along with my health, having a roof over my head and so much more that I’m blessed to have.

I’m also grateful for the many, many non-profit companies that, on a daily basis, are taking care of others and doing more than I will ever accomplish in my lifetime. Below are a few of the non-profits that I want to give recognition to for all that they do, and how grateful I am for the difference they are making in this world.

American Cancer Society
