Thanksgiving as a national holiday has a storied history. In 1789 George Washington introduced the event as a national holiday. It was not until 1863 that President Abraham Lincoln set the final Thursday in November. Fast forward to 1989 President George H.W. Bush, when granted the first official pardon to a turkey, a tradition that continues today, including this year. It is a spirit of thankfulness by which we can find reasons to change our hearts and minds to look at people who may have not impacted us the way we would have hoped and to consider that we might be at fault ourselves. Giving thanks and being thankful—that’s what our special day is dedicated to each year. People are thankful for their family, those present, and those gone before them, for infusing a spirit of gratitude for every gift of love and time shared with the people they love in their life. This Thanksgiving don’t forget to tell someone how much they mean to you. Live, laugh, and don't forget to enjoy a delicious dinner! Happy Thanksgiving to all!
