Looking for inspirations for Thanksgiving I am thankful for this year? Here are some things to be thankful for!

The weather is getting cold, the Christmas trees are going up in every store, and the pumpkin flavored everything is everywhere.

Yes, it’s time for Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving can mean a lot of things to different people – family get togethers, big piles of food, football – but for most people, it brings a feeling of thankfulness.
