The holidays are literally, right around the corner. Turkeys are purchased, pies are being prepped, and the guys are ready for some football.

As we surround ourselves with family and friends this holiday season, it’s the perfect time to reflect on the past year. Forget about the negatives and focus on the what’s really important.

There’s so much to be thankful for!

On Facebook, many people take part in the ’30 Days of Thanks’ challenge. This challenge has you post 1 thing you’re thankful for each day of November. Some are funny, others are sincere, but all in all, it reminds us to appreciate all the good we have in our lives.
