Tomorrow, here in the U.S., we will celebrate our Thanksgiving holiday, so I want to take a few moments to wish all of you; my readers, listeners, colleagues, clients and friends, a very happy Thanksgiving.

The Thanksgiving holiday is a good time to consider all that we are thankful for, and to express that gratitude.

Personally, I am blessed with a marvelous family.  My extraordinary wife, three wonderful children, parents, sisters, cousins and the rest  are among the most important people in my life, and for their health, happiness and well-being, (and my own) I am truly thankful.

Similarly, I am grateful to all of my friends and colleagues for their friendship, support, referrals and help in growing my practice.  To my clients, I give thanks for your continued patronage, and for making my work interesting, enjoyable and fruitful.

Next, I need to express my gratitude for all of the abundance and the opportunities  that come my way each day.  I am truly blessed with a life of my own creation, that excites and interests me, and in which I am the master of my own destiny.  This is truly something to be thankful for.

This season, with so much of my home state, California, consumed by wildfires,  I'm feeling especially thankful that my own home hasn't been threatened, that my children, wife, and I are safe, and that my family who have been affected, have only suffered minor inconveniences.  But importantly, I am also thankful for having been given/taught compassion, and for the ability and opportunity to help people who haven't been so lucky.  If that's you, and you need something, please DO reach out and ask.

Finally, I must give thanks to our wonderful country.  For all its flaws, the United States remains a wonderful country.  I'm thankful for our constitutionally guaranteed freedoms, in particular those guaranteed under the First Amendment which says:

Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.

(Of course there are many other important freedoms… but this is my personal favorite.)

So, as we gather with family and friends to enjoy a sumptuous feast, give thanks, I encourage everyone to  do a bit of service for those who aren't as fortunate, and take a few moments to think of, feel, and express gratitude for the people, things, and experiences with which you have been blessed!.

May your Thanksgiving holiday be filled with love, laughter and  joy.

Gobble Gobble!

Gratefully yours,
Gordon
