As we celebrate Thanksgiving, we realize that there are some in the world who may struggle in finding reasons to give thanks. Some of us are grieving over the loss of loved ones; or the impact of terrorism and violence. Certainly, if we turn on the news, we can easily find many reasons to be angry and bitter.
My preference is not to ignore world news, but to choose to impact world events by "being" peace and sharing peace. It is in that spirit that I offer you this holiday gift.

The music is by Josh Groban: I find no better song that exemplifies the spirit of gratitude, as his song: "Thankful," written by David Foster, Richard James Page, and Carol Bayer Sager.
In deepest gratitude to my family, friends, neighbors, colleagues, clients, nature, and spirit.
