Thanksgiving is my favorite Holiday. I love the food and the friends and family. Reflecting on this past year, I am grateful for the many blessings in my life including family, friends, and many happy clients.

I am often guilty of rushing through the day and thinking only of my own immediate obligations and overlooking the needs of people who are ill-physically or otherwise, the service men & women who bravely defend our great nation all day, every day, those who, through no fault of their own, do not have enough food to eat or money to buy the bare necessities, and the list goes on.

This is the time of year when we act to offer gifts, money, food, toys, or time to members of our community who need help. Right here in South Gwinnett, there are charities such as the “Southeast Gwinnett Cooperative Ministry” and the “Grayson Children’s Fund,” not to mention the countless religious organizations who work tirelessly year-round to assist those in need by organizing charitable events and collecting food and money. A great big THANK YOU to the many folks who make that all happen! Please consider donating to one of these organizations ALL YEAR, not just at Thanksgiving or Christmas time. My New Year’s resolution is to raise the bar and give more and to give more often than this past year. I hope if you are able that you will, too.

Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, and a Happy, Healthy, and Prosperous New Year!
