Yes, the holiday season is in full swing, though for many of us they are looking a little different than in years past. However, that does not mean they can’t be a joyful, healing time in our lives.
Heroes come in all shapes and sizes. We know. We put heroes to work every day; people dedicated to providing healthcare, education, community health and other essential support for our communities.
Not able to get together with family and friends this year? That’s ok, there are still plenty of good reasons to head to the kitchen and whip up your favorite Thanksgiving recipes.
