I’m thinking today about what I’m thankful for. After a tense trip to the Los Angeles area and seeing my brother’s declining health, I desperately started to look for joy in my life. The day after I got back, I went to help out and take photos at Kars For Kids. I found joy there.  I didn’t know anyone, and they made me feel welcome. I was also amazed at how generous the car clubs and other exhibitors were. They pushed the 50/50 up to a wicked good amount and also purchased a good amount of raffle tickets.  Marebeth Gromer, Photographer and organizer of “Shoot Or Go Home” blog, did a wonderful job of putting this together. When I left at 1:30 p.m., she was finally sitting down and taking a break. So today, I’m thankful for my family, friends, and new photo hobby which has become my passion. As we get closer to Thanksgiving, try to keep the original intent of this American holiday. It’s not what store has the best buy, but finding the joy in life and giving thanks.
