We always have the choice in this world to focus on the negative or focus on the positive.  I hope you take the time on Thanksgiving and throughout the year to appreciate all the good things in your life.  We are tremendously fortunate to live in this country and this county and I believe.  The world always looks brighter when we stop to remember that occasionally.....;)

Happy Thanksgiving!  May we stop to remember all those no longer with us and those not able to be home for the holiday.  Have a great weekend!

Mike Kovack

At times our own light goes out and is rekindled by a spark from another person.  Each of us has cause to think with deep gratitude of those who have lighted the flame within us.
