Enjoy your Thanksgiving Day, whether you are with your family or still looking forward to a later celebration.  Reflecting on the challenges of complex blended and foster families reminded me of a quote from my favorite author:

“It’s like in the great stories, Mr. Frodo . . . Folk in those stories had lots of chances of turning back, only they didn’t. They kept going, because they were holding on to something. That there is some good in this world, and it’s worth fighting for.”

Ours is a task worth doing and fighting for.
