Thanks giving is a happy time at my house. The whole family gathers to share a meal and stories even though several members travel many miles for the occasion. During dinner last Thanksgiving, we each told a story about something during the past year that made us grateful. Listening to the conversations, I realized that I was most grateful for my family and the opportunity to be together again. Perhaps sharing is what makes Thanksgiving such a happy time.
