I am convinced that the words “Thank you” are two of the most important words ever spoken. These words hold meaning and healing power in our world today. Take the time to express gratitude and tell someone what they mean to you. And, if you’re looking for a unique way to share the love, check out the ideas in the gift guide we shared last year, or follow us on social media for more suggestions.
And…I thank YOU – clients, colleagues, cheerleaders, family, and friends – for encouraging me in this work of preserving stories & legacies. Here’s a gift for you: Conversation Starters for home, work, or a special time around the table. I hope you find these helpful to use or to give as a gift this year.
It will be a different Thanksgiving. Wishing you one filled with meaning & grace.
More simple ideas to add a sense of connection to your holiday season:
