Grateful for a New Year

To my wonderful clients, We are entering my favorite time of year, the Thanksgiving holiday season.  I have a difficult time recognizing the historical purpose of the holiday; I don’t understand why we blindly celebrate a very tragic part of our history.  That said, I use this time of year to sincerely reflect upon my […] Read the full post here.
