It's Our Turn: Remember to be thankful

Email News Alerts

Several months ago, a special Echo Press reader told me she had clipped out the Thanksgiving column I had written several years ago and rereads it every once in awhile because it makes her feel good.


To a writer, that's the ultimate compliment!

I remembered the basics of the column, but not the details. So I dug it up. Too bad I hadn't kept a copy of my own to refer back to every time I felt that life handed me lemons.
