Giving Thanks

November 26, 2013

When it comes to being a generous giver, the first thought for many is about the money they can give.

My daughter, Aaryn, and I just spent a week in October serving with SCORE International in the Dominican Republic - the photos below are a few of my favorites from our trip. This was my third trip to the D.R. and each time, I’m reminded of how much I have to give thanks for. I’m reminded that giving my time, investing my energy and sharing love with others is sometimes even more valuable than giving money.

Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family.
