What’s your favorite part of Thanksgiving?

For me, it’s probably enjoying food with family. We laugh; we swap stories and remember years long past; and we reflect on the things for which we are grateful.

I have said it repeatedly the past few years, but any more it feels like Thanksgiving is in danger of becoming “Black Friday Eve.” Between stores opening on Thanksgiving Day and over-the-top marketing programs to entice shoppers the weekend after, Thanksgiving is beginning to to lose some of the prominence it once had in America.

I hope you and your family have a wonderful time today celebrating together and enjoying the many blessings God has given us. One thing I am deeply grateful for is your friendship and support. As you probably know, November and December are important months for Family Council, as most of our gifts for the year come in during this time; if you have not already done so, I hope you will give a generous, tax-deductible donation to help us continue standing up for families like yours all over Arkansas.

I hope you have a wonderful Thanksgiving!
