It started with getting ready for loved ones to gather while we made our last-minute grocery run. The kitchen was full of different aromas from the food prepared that we chowed down on. As we reflected on the year, we remembered all those who are no longer with us. We remembered all the good and not so good things, and through all of it we still gave thanks. At the table we heard the stories of what we are thankful for. This is the time of year to pour out our hearts and give of ourselves love, peace and joy.
