I wanted to take a moment to wish you and your family a very Happy Thanksgiving. Today is a day when we count our blessings, and give thanks for all the people who enrich our lives. Our family, friends and loved ones are what make each of our lives so special.
I wake up everyday, and I am so incredibly thankful. There isn't a moment that I don't feel blessed. Blessed that my children are happy, healthy, warm and fed. Blessed by the love and support of Danica, which I could never deserve but treasure everyday. Blessed to have two wonderful jobs and a house to come home to at the end of everyday. Blessed by family and friends who stand with me through thick and thin. Blessed by the opportunity to stand up and serve my community, and work to make it a better place.
Even in these most trying of times for our nation, I'm thankful in the midst of the challenges. I'm thankful that I see neighbors coming together to support one another in times of need. Thankful that I see people standing up and using their voice when they witness injustice. Thankful that people are getting involved in areas where they can make a difference. Thankful that we are moving towards Country Over Party, and that the season ahead comes with brighter days.
On this day, I hope that you find a quite moment to give thanks for all your blessings.
