Thanksgiving 2020: The year has certainly left much to be desired for so many of us. But I hope everyone can take a moment this week to slow down, relax a bit, and find some silver lining to be thankful for.

That's what I'm doing right now. As I write this, I'm sitting on the back deck of a cabin that my wife and I are renting in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Georgia looking at a distant mountain and colorful foliage. My Golden Retriever's doing the same. And we're reflecting on things we are thankful about.
