This week, the nation stopped to give thanks. And not a moment too soon because it's especially important to remember all we're grateful for in the midst of news about a gunman opening fire at a Planned Parenthood clinic, the release of a video of a teenager being killed by police with 16 shots, rising hostilities between Russia and Turkey, and a political candidate making fun of a reporter's disability -- then denying it -- in a race turned ugly with xenophobia. All the more reason to count our blessings, not just at Thanksgiving, but every day -- especially now that science has confirmed the incredible health benefits of gratitude. And finally, as we head into a presidential election year, let's also be really grateful that we have the power to elect our leaders and reject those who don't reflect our values.

I'm spending Thanksgiving differently this year. It's very quiet at our Vermont country inn, the first year in 28 years that we haven't served Thanksgiving dinner. Dad loved hosting the holiday. It was the perfect excuse for him to miss Thanksgiving with his in-laws at the Wasserstein Thanksgiving in Manhattan.
It was one of the greatest Thanksgivings of my life. The reason for us being there was all but forgotten because we were at The Metropole. Secretly, I hoped my mom would screw up the next Thanksgiving too.

Every year from family and friends on Thanksgiving Day I had to hear "I can't believe you have to work tomorrow. I'm off the entire weekend!" they'd croon. I hated it. I knew that they would be in various stages of enjoyment of the day after the holiday; shopping, relaxing and eating more of those great tasting leftovers.
