Happy Thanksgiving!

Psalm 92: 1 says, “It is good to give thanks to the Lord.”  

I am looking forward to a great Thanksgiving Day – of course there will be food in abundance – but my favorite part of our day will be listening to the conversation around our table and the chance to hear what each person is thankful for.

A year ago I ran a contest – asking all my friends on Facebook, LinkedIn & Twitter to send me their favorite question to ask around the Thanksgiving table – promising prizes to the authors of the Top Five Questions.   Scores of great questions poured in!

Here are the “Top Five Questions to Ask on Thanksgiving” that were selected!
