Thanksgiving Blessings with my Wife Melanie

Happy Thanksgiving! On what is undoubtedly one of my favorite holidays of the year, today I’m joined by my favorite person on the planet, my wife Melanie. Before you dig into all the food and take a nap, get out for a walk or workout and listen to this short message on GRATITUDE. At the very least, pop on today’s show while prepping your food as it will definitely get you in the right mindset.

On today’s show, both Melanie and I share gratitude, love, and the mindset necessary to stay in gratitude during tough times. We also share some things we are struggling with and how we deal with it. This is real-talk. This is getting as personal as it gets and I get a bit choked-up and emotional talking about our amazing community of support. 

Enjoy today’s show and I appreciate you tuning in today. Have a great Thanksgiving and let’s be sure to celebrate what and who we are most grateful for today. Amen.
