There's a lot to be thankful for and I'm not just talking turkey!

It's great having the family all together for the Thanksgiving holiday. With all the depressing and recessing news which has dominated the media, it is particularly important for us to be with those that represent comfort and happiness.

Times are tough for most of us now, and that is why I think it is essential to focus on what is positive, useful, and what we as individuals can control or change. I find that it is helpful to focus on what I have to be thankful for, instead of what I don't have. This attitude does not solve all problems, but it can give one a better perspective on what problem needs to be addressed first, and how to initiate productive change.

I feel really lucky that I am in a baking business that provides people with products that look yummy, smell great, taste wonderful, and give our customers a feeling of comfort. I know it sounds simplistic, but sometimes finding happiness is as easy as a piece of cake.
