It’s the time of year when we pause to remember all the things we’re thankful for. So, by all means, remember your loved ones and your friends. If you’re in good health, remember to value that. If you’re financially sound, remember that there are plenty of people who aren’t as well-off. And above all, tell the people in your life, for whose love, caring and support you’re thankful, that you remember them and all the things they do to make your life better and fuller.
On that note, Fathers and Families founder Ned Holstein wrote me and others an email with an excellent insight. He asks us to remember that we are “doing truly vital, critical work that will rescue the family structure of America. We should each feel grateful that we have the opportunity to make a difference.”
I do. It is truly an honor and a privilege to be able to help in one of the most important undertakings in American life – keeping parents and children connected. Thanks to Ned for reminding me. And thanks to everyone who helps us, contributes to us and who let us know every day that they value what we do.
