Giving Thanks

Norman Vincent Peale promoted “The Power of Positive Thinking”.   “The Secret” prompted us to consider the Law of Attraction.  Oprah reminded us, as had many before her, that what we focus on expands.  And, now, many of us are keeping “gratitude journals” to keep our attention placed squarely on the positive.  For whatever reason – whether to bring more riches into our life, or to remind us how good we already have it – many of us are honing the art of giving thanks.  So, we asked some of our co-workers this Thanksgiving what, aside from their friends and family, they’re most thankful for.  Topping the list:  Family, and all of YOU: our friends, co-workers and customers!  Here’s the rest of the list:
