As our national day for giving thanks approaches, I cannot help but think of what a challenging time this has been and will continue to be for so many of us. However, this special day does also usher in a holiday season that underscores that for which we should be grateful, and inspires the hope for the future that is cherished within us all. As the poet Robert Filie has written, “Thanksgiving focuses our minds on our blessings rather than on our problems. It makes the heart glad for what we have been given, and it takes our minds off the burdens we all have.”
So on behalf of the Leadership Team, I wish all of you and your families a glorious Thanksgiving, filled with cheer, with good health, with happiness, and with the courage to face each day with optimism and with confidence for the future.
With love and gratitude,
