Also this week we are celebrating Thanksgiving! I truly hope that it is a memorable and special holiday for you and your families. It is a good reminder for us to talk about what we are thankful for. A good practice at the dinner table would be to count your blessings. Encourage all to share 1-2 things blessings received this past year. Despite of this pandemic and all of the other challenges 2020 has given us individually and as a society we are blessed in so many ways and this is a good place to remind all of that.
