Happy Thanksgiving

Wednesday, November 23, 2016

Dear Friends,

Happy Thanksgiving! I hope you’ll spend tomorrow with loved ones, giving thanks for what’s most important in your life.

Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. In 1864, Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the last Thursday of November be set aside for “Thanksgiving and Praise.” You can read the entire proclamation here; it’s truly powerful and helps provide greater meaning to why we reflect and give thanks.

As citizens of this state and nation, we’re blessed and have countless reasons to give thanks. From my family to yours, have a safe, fulfilling Thanksgiving!
