What’s your Thanksgiving?

Like other holidays, the original reason for Thanksgiving has been lost amid today’s re-purposed celebrations. To many, this one has become known more as Black Friday Eve. Hey, I’m all for helping retailers by parting with some of your “harvest” for gift giving. But there are other ways to celebrate Thanksgiving. Like being grateful for what you’ve been given to the extent that you share some of your overabundance with people who are truly struggling. During this season, I can’t help but think of Water Street Mission and its very worthy battle against homelessness and hunger in our community. Our firm supports – and helps – their great work, and so does our family. However you feel most comfortable sharing some of your harvest with others, do it this Thanksgiving Day. There probably will still be some left for Christmas shopping. THANKS for GIVING.
