Today many of us will sit down with family and friends and enjoy a feast. Thanksgiving is the most celebrated American holiday. It is one of my favorites too!

I feel very fortunate this holiday because our two daughters, who live in Brooklyn, will be joining us. It has been a long time since they have been able to come home for Thanksgiving.

That is my thanksgiving this holiday. Read more about Thanksgiving
