Thanksgiving - I’m giving thanks

Katie Hinderer | 22 November 2011
This week is Thanksgiving here in the United States of America. It’s a time when we stop and give thanks for all the great things in our lives.

That little exercise had a profound impact on my overall mentality and mindset.

In a word, it’s all about connections – family, friends. You can’t imagine not being with the people you love; so much so that anyone not surrounded by family and friends on the day will receive numerous invitations to join other people’s Thanksgiving festivities.
