The Gift of Gratitude: Happy Thanksgiving to Our Amazing 30Seconds Community!

Each Thanksgiving, I pause to reflect on how very grateful I am for the blessings all around us, including our 30Seconds community. With its start as 30Second Mom to its growth now as, our mission to make life better in 30 seconds has only evolved with more passion and dedication. 

Whether you are part of our devoted management team or you share tips, contribute to the discussion or join our Twitter chats on Wednesday nights, each of you touches my life in unique ways. I am so grateful for each contributor who shares his or her wisdom. I am so thankful for each reader who appreciates and shares that wisdom. I so appreciate the wonderful brands we work with, who support our mission and further our growth, as we do the same for them. All of this gratitude is such a gift. We have created a powerful community that shares and cares - a dream come true for me. 

I wish you a peaceful and blessed Thanksgiving with your families. As my family and I talk about what we are most grateful for this year, 30Seconds is among my greatest blessings. The beauty of what we are building takes my breath away. Many, many thanks to all of you for being on this journey with us! Sending much gratitude to you on this day, and every day!
