Commitment not Resolutions

I was reading the Wall Street Journal this morning and they had an interesting article about keeping resolutions.

Thanksgiving in Kuwait. Gratitude.

Hello Everyone

I wanted to wish you all a very healthy and happy Thanksgiving.

Thanksgiving for me is a time of reflection and a time to come back to the present. It is a time for me to be grateful for all of the wonderful things in my life.
