Each year on the fourth Thursday of November, Americans gather for a day of feasting and family. Thanksgiving became a federal holiday in 1863 when, during the American Civil War, President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed a national day of "Thanksgiving and praise to our beneficent Father who dwelleth in the Heavens," to be celebrated on the last Thursday of November.
Thanksgiving is about gratitude and it turns out feeling thankful has some pretty potent effects on your health. From being more optimistic to getting better sleep, gratitude plays a role in your health. The tradition of sitting around the table hearing each person saying what they are grateful for is a sure way to lift everyone’s spirits. It can be as simple as being grateful for your Thanksgiving meal or it can be a more profound appreciation for being alive to share this day.
This year has flown by, and we’re grateful for everything we’ve been able to accomplish. Though 2016 isn’t over yet, we did want to take this opportunity and say thank you to all of our Realtors, Staff, Friends and Family for helping us grow.
