The Gratitude Pause

Happy Thanksgiving to All!

Today, I will spend time with my family in New York City and will be thankful for all in my life who brighten my days.  Who brightens your days?  Today, I will make a list of all of these people who brighten my life.  And I will make sure during the days leaning up to Advent, I will write them a note to say thank you–so blessed to have those people whose encouragement, light and love make my life better.

Here are a few songs that capture what Thanksgiving means and a sneak peak of one I love to listen to during the Advent Season…

Thanksgiving Song by Mary Chapin Carpenter

Thankful by Josh Groban



Happy Thanksgiving!

Sending prayers your way this Thanksgiving…

I have enjoyed working for over 20 years in the education and publishing spaces creating accessible learning environments for all students. My teaching experiences led me into supporting schools in need of improvement and creating and delivering professional development to teachers and leaders. And then I moved into selling educational materials, programs, technology, and services. Most recently, I have been developing content for innovative learning programs in K-12 and museum spaces. For the past 17 years serving on the board of the Collegiate Corporation, I have led initiatives in women's leadership, stewardship, development, virtual strategy, and educational programs for youth and families. Outside of the learning and non-profit spaces, I enjoy blogging about faith and inspiring women. I have a passion for travel, where you might find me exploring national parks, museums, and finding the best local restaurant to eat. I capture my adventures digitally with my camera. My photography has appeared in exhibitions throughout Europe and Australia in 2019 and 2020, on television in the United States, and was chosen from over 100,000 entries to appear in a well-known photography magazine.
