Most importantly, I'm grateful for the people in my life. My friends, family and husband are the reason why I smile every day; they're the people that, without them, things would mean absolutely nothing.
Today is a reflection of this, but it's also a reminder that a sole day shouldn't be the only time when we express gratitude for those who make our lives whole. May we all celebrate Thanksgiving with this in mind. Here's to hugging our loved ones extra close, calling a friend we haven't talked to in a while, and letting those most important to us know that they are the reason our thanks is said loudly, today and every day.
