It's been a tough year. Folks across the nation have fallen on hard times with the pandemic claiming lives, declining economy ending jobs, to weather disasters and the never-ending drama with our government. It's easy to complain and get caught up in self pity.

This Thanksgiving, try removing yourself from personal stresses and donate your time helping others. Believe it or not, we improve our overall happiness when we make a difference in someone else's life. Giving back, donating your time to charity, or serving food at your local food back are great ways to take your mind off your own troubles. Besides, it's important to remember there is always someone doing worse than you.

Below are ideas on how you and your family can share in the true meaning of Thanksgiving. Bring joy to others and benefit from the blessings of fellowship.

Happy holidays, everyone.
