It’s less than two weeks until Thanksgiving – the one day each year that is set aside to remind us to be thankful for this amazing life we are living. Yes, every life is amazing – just the fact that we are alive makes it so. And though we know we need to be thankful every day, we sometimes forget how important that is to our happiness. So, having this one day as a reminder is helpful in getting us back on track. Many of us have plans to spend the day with family – some of whom we may only see once a year. We want to feed them the best to celebrate our kinship. The grocery stores are full of turkeys, and cranberries, and sweet potatoes and pecans and pumpkin pie filling. However, for those specialty foods – those yummy extras that we may not have time or talent to prepare, we can look to the local shops. One of the things we can be thankful for in the NC Brunswick Islands is the number of local specialty shops available to us.
