November is a month of remembering and thanksgiving.  We remember all those who have gone before us – Saints known and unknown – as we celebrate All Saints and All Soul’s Days.  The feasting of Thanksgiving day reminds us to pause to be mindful of and thankful for all that we have every day.  This November we have an opportunity to set aside time each day, perhaps as you begin the day or at the close of your day, to remember and give thanks for someone who has inspired you, loved you and encouraged you.  It may be a loved one or someone you’ve never met but who in their life and death has impacted your life.  This is also a time you can pause to remember and give thanks for the daily comforts, basic needs and relationships that we often take for granted.
