My mom was the guardian of recipes handed down from generation to generation. Sure, there will be many more bumps, heartburn and worry, but I have complete confidence that we will come out stronger and better for all of it.

There are so many blessings each and every one of us have in common, such as living on a planet that despite its ongoing degradation by humans still provides air to breathe, water to drink and food to eat.

Despite the Christmas decorations that are taking over the empty Halloween shelves in every retail store or the continuous Hallmark Christmas movie marathons, there is still one more holiday left: Thanksgiving.
