Being Thankful from A to Z

Thanksgiving Day in the United States is a holiday on the fourth Thursday of November. It is traditionally a day for families and friends to get together for a special meal. The meal often includes a turkey, stuffing, potatoes, cranberry sauce, gravy, pumpkin pie, and vegetables. Thanksgiving is a time for many people to give thanks for what they have. 

In Garner, Iowa, the weather has made it a little difficult to feel grateful.  It has been cold and it is dark outside before I leave work every night.  However, there is much for which I am thankful.  Last year at Thanksgiving, my brother asked us to draw letters of the alphabet and state what we were thankful for that began with the letter drawn.  I have so many things to be thankful for at Stellar, I thought I would do the same here:
