Nice title Jackie, ... but where's the beef ? (I mean where's the praise ?)(What happened to the praise part ?) Apparently Ms. Gingrich Cushman is too politically correct to do her praising in public. She might have offended a muslim or atheist. With a name like Gingrich Cushman, who'd a thunk it ?

Thanksgiving week is a time to express gratitude and appreciation and to acknowledge what we are thankful for in our lives. Many of us have Thanksgiving routines and rituals that take us out of the everyday routine of our lives and provide a space for us to slow down, unwind, reflect and give thanks.

This change of pace is important as our everyday lives tend to be focused on action and activities, completion and accomplishment. Few of us make time in our routines for reflection and thankfulness.

The breaking of routine allows this pause for reflection to occur....
