The Attitude of Gratitude

Grateful and blessed – Tim and Patti Kaminski at “Red and Blue United: A Tribute to Sugar Land’s First Responders.”

Gratitude turns what we have into enough.  I have no idea who originally penned these simple yet powerful words, but I certainly appreciate them, especially this time of year.  We have so much to be thankful for in Fort Bend.  We live in a strong, diverse, community-minded society with so much opportunity.  I, for one, am extremely appreciative of all that our community has to offer.

This time of year affords so many opportunities to both enjoy the weather along with supporting our beloved community organizations. The George Ranch’s Great Pumpkin Round Up is in full swing every Saturday this month, and ticket sales support the Ranch’s mission of education.  The Houston Museum of Natural Science at Sugar Land kicks off the holiday season with their tenth annual Jingle Tree.  I understand this year, the museum is kicking off the season with a dino-size roar – all in support of accessible science education for all.  And, of course, halls are being decked all over Fort Bend for the annual Child Advocates of Fort Bend Christmas Home Tour supporting children in need. Read about all of these amazing holiday events in this issue.

As you are planning your own holiday event this month, should you need a little help selecting the right wine for your Thanksgiving feast, Jeff gives some suggestions in “The Key to Surviving Thanksgiving” on page 10.  With such a smorgasbord of flavors on your turkey table, purchasing the perfect wine can be a bit confusing and overwhelming.

What’s not confusing to us at absolutely! focus media is the gratitude we have for you – our readers, advertisers and subscribers.  We thank you for your trust in us, and we wish you all a blessed Thanksgiving with your family and friends.

Stay focused,
