Make Your Own Cranberry Sauce

I love Thanksgiving dinner.
I hate the omnipresent canned shaped cranberry sauce:
Bart Cranberry Sauce
Especially since making your own is this easy:

1 cup sugar
1 cup Orange Juice.
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
One 12-ounce bag cranberries
Combine the sugar, orange juice, cinnamon, and cranberries in a medium saucepan.
Bring up to a simmer over medium heat and cook for 15 minutes.
Let cool completely before serving.

Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action.

Thanksgiving, after all, is a word of action. – W.J. Cameron

I stumbled across this quote late last week and it has kind of stuck with me while I get ready for some much needed time off and some quality family time.   

I don’t spend enough time heading that call to action beyond some basic lip service. I am blessed beyond what I fairly deserve and don’t take the time to tell the people who helped me get here how thankful I truly am for their help and guidance.   So don’t be surprised if you get an email, phone call, text message or carrier pigeon from me in the next couple of days.

I am going to be a little less Peppermint Patty and a little more Linus this Thanksgiving.

10 Things I Am Thankful For…

My Wife’s never ending patience, love, support and understanding.

A son who makes me laugh every day.

For an extended family who is there for us whenever we need them.

The opportunities I have been given this year to travel all over the world and speak.

That each new day is another chance to get it right.

For a group of friends who never coddle but always makes sure I am on the right path.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and the chance to share one of the loves from my childhood with my son.

That every day I am able to chase my passion and call it my job.

For God’s undeniable guidance and blessings in my life.  

My Wife’s never ending patience, love, support and understanding.
