I’m thankful to be a part of a life’s work that has the potential to make the world around me whole, and that always tempers my thankfulness because my work doesn’t always live up to its potential. If Thanksgiving isn’t good for everyone around me, how can it be good for me?
So let’s get off Christmas’ back and give Thanksgiving a well-deserved lick or two.
And pass the turkey and dressing, please.
