Thanksgiving is one of my favorite holidays. It is all about family and feasting and taking the time to reflect on all of the blessings we have to be thankful for. The fun of family and feasting is a time to relish and enjoy. We are so fortunate to be living in a time and place where our families are safe and well provided for and we can take the time to enjoy the fruits of our labors. The “thanks” part of Thanksgiving provides me with the opportunity to appreciate my life and blessings and thank God for the many wonderful things in my life: my family and friends, my parish and community, my profession and the school community of HTIS.
May you and your family enjoy a beautiful Thanksgiving and reflect on the blessings in your life!
The weather was perfect and the committee did a wonderful job of providing a family day that we all enjoyed. Thank you to everyone who donated their talents and goods to HTIS that day.
