But also remember that although Thanksgiving centers around giving thanks, you should be giving thanks every day not just on Thanksgiving. One of my favorite parts about Thanksgiving is that it's our eye-opener to all of the good in our life. It's a day to be happy and grateful rather than thinking of the stress and difficulties of life. So use this holiday to keep positive the rest of the year and start of 2017 the best way we can.
