When this time of year approaches I find myself being surprised at how fast another holiday season has arrived. Here we are standing at the eve of Thanksgiving and soon we will be anticipating the sounds and seasonal delights of Christmas.

Even inside the changing of the weather we are able to feel the cool breezes approaching and the fireplaces heating up to welcome this joyful time of the year.
The spirit of gratitude is so much a part of November. Slowing down and being reminded of all we have to be thankful for. There are so many ways we can offer our gratitude through helping those less fortunate. Many local charities are needing support during this time of the year. Remember as you share this season with your friends and family to make giving to others a special part of how you express your gratitude.

The definition of gratitude is this: the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness.

From the delight of preparing the table for our Thanksgiving meal, to welcoming the hugs and kisses of our loved ones, let’s enter into this season of gratitude ready to show appreciation and return kindness to all those we come in contact with.
This month’s issue is full of wonderful community stories, upcoming fall events and many local businesses that are offering you their expertise through promoting their businesses here in Lake Cities Living magazine.

Take a break with us and sit back and enjoy the warmth of community shared
in the pages of this month’s issue of Lake Cities Living.
