Slices of Life... Giving thanks - all year longGratitude. We all acknowledge the inherent value of being grateful – at least we do on the last Thursday in November. We fill our mouths and our stomachs with too much good food and spend a moment or a mealtime pondering the things we are thankful for. We may even go around the table and name them. Then, after stuffing ourselves with a second slice of pumpkin pie (extra whipped cream, please) we settle on the couch to let the tryptophan do its work – and we call it a holiday.
