A Thankful Thanksgiving


Well, tomorrow is Thanksgiving (already, can you believe it?!). It's the perfect time to sit back and reflect upon what it actually is you are thankful for. Whether it be the shoes on your feet, the family and friends you have, the job you work at, or the house you live in... there are so many things that we so often take for granted, but this time of year really does help us to remember that we are so lucky for what we have.

I went around and asked each family member what they are most thankful for, and here's what they said...
