THE SENTIMENT OF THE SEASON
A TIME FOR GIVING THANKS
Like many families on Thanksgiving, mine makes a point of getting together every year. However, we never gather in one particular place since our family is spread all across the country. Lately, we’ve been staying in Florida. But in the past, we’ve made it up to Virginia, where my wife Ashley is from, and even as far as New York or back to my hometown in Illinois. Now that my mom recently moved to Florida, we plan to stay here this year. My family came in from Illinois, and her family came in from Virginia. Not only was it the first time we hosted Thanksgiving, it was the first time both families were together at our house. It was a lot of fun having everyone gathered in one place. Another Thanksgiving memory that has stuck with me over the years comes from when I was in college. During college, I was on the wrestling team, and we had a tournament scheduled for the day after Thanksgiving. That meant two things: I wasn’t going to spend Thanksgiving with my family, and, arguably One of my most memorable Thanksgivings was the
worse, I couldn’t enjoy a Thanksgiving feast. Instead, I had a weigh-in on Thanksgiving. Thankfully, once the tournament was over, my team and I went out for a giant feast of our own. It may have been a little late, but the sentiment of the season was with us. Speaking of the sentiment of the season, it’s always important to take some time and think about what you are thankful for. When you reflect and share what it is you’re thankful for, it helps put life into perspective. I’m thankful for my family, my health, and my clients. I am especially thankful for all the support I’ve received over the years from family, friends, mentors, and clients. All I can say is, “Thank you.” I want to give a special thank-you to my clients. It’s an honor to work with you and to help resolve your situations. Working in law, I meet a lot of fascinating people with unique stories. Some cases are tough, but we push forward.
Another aspect of the holiday I’m thankful for is the food. As Thanksgiving approaches, I’m always eager to sit down to the table and enjoy all the wonderful dishes, from mashed potatoes to pumpkin pie. Here’s another fact about me: I love pumpkin pie. We’re already a big pumpkin household, but I can’t get enough of pumpkin pie. If I could only have one dish, it would probably have to be the pumpkin pie. I might even be known to ask Ashley to do a test run on the pie to make sure we’re prepared for the big day. It doesn’t hurt to do a little taste testing, right?
From my family to yours, we wish you a wonderful and bountiful Thanksgiving.
