Thanksgiving is the greatest holiday. It is as good as Christmas though I think better because there aren’t presents distracting us from family. Time with family, great food, great wine or festive drinks, sitting around the fire in slippers and telling stories of years past. It doesn’t get better. The greatest part of the whole day is that it is all about giving thanks. There is so much to be grateful for and this is the day to let people know that. And for those you cannot tell for one reason or another, it is a day to hold a space of gratitude for them and all they have brought to life. Gratitude is a powerful driver and you can use it to create amazing things for yourself and your life. Remember to have gratitude…not just today, but use it and express it everyday! If you are reading this, know that I count you as one of my blessings.

Everyone…meet Choco!!!!  So I have decided to get a dog. This is Choco and he is a 2 year old chocolate lab that I cannot wait to get. Choco lives in Colorado Springs right now with a family that loves him however they are so busy with life they do not get enough time to be with Choco and he needs attention. My intention is to bring Choco into the Cafe of LIFE with me on a daily basis to be part of our LIFE parties that happen everyday. I am glad he is already 2 as he will fit into my life better than a puppy at this point. Choco will love some of the places that I hike and will get me back in my running sneakers. HE will have the lake to explore at my mom’s house and 200 acres of orchard to explore at my dad’s house and a cousin named Walter to play with. He will arrive in Detroit by plane around December 1st. You will meet him very soon!

It’s election day 2008-finally!!!  
I do not get caught up in it all as I stay away from watching TV on a regular basis. I only watch one show per week as a ritual with my parents. And through this election season, I am very happy my life doesn’t revolve around the TV. We are completely bombarded by so many ideas through the media it becomes difficult to decipher between what are your own thoughts and those that were planted there by the media and advertising and campaigning. HOWEVER, in saying all that, it is important to vote and make the difference that you can. It may seem small, however you never know how far reaching voting today will effect your life and others. So get out there and make it happen. ROCK THE VOTE!!! (I love that phrase)
