My favorite part of Thanksgiving as a kid was the assortment of desserts on the dessert table. I would want a piece of everything and somehow get away with it as long as I ate all of my dinner, which I didn’t have a problem with either.
As I grew older I became reflective of the meaning of Thanksgiving as I’m sure many of you did. I began to consciously ponder what I should be thankful for on that day and every day, not just on Thanksgiving. I try to carry that attitude throughout the year even though it’s difficult at times. Nonetheless, I feel thankful today for pumpkin pie, family, and friends, (including all of you), just like I did as a kid.
