Thanksgiving Day is just a few days away. There is an infinite amount of things to be thankful for. Living through a pandemic has taught us the power of gratitude to a novel degree. We have witnessed the entire world change in ways that have transformed our perspective of what normal is. Take time to reflect on the people and things you value and are thankful for.

For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.
