We are officially eight days away from Thanksgiving with Christmas and New Year's amongst many other holidays right around the corner. I think it's time to get into the Holiday spirit if you haven't already.

Today, I decided to share a compliment that I was recently given. The compliment was that I was appreciated for bringing information about what's happening to our area and the area is all the better for it. I thanked that person and appreciated it and it really did make my day.

To some it's a job, to others it's something you do, to me it's life and it's fun. It's comments like that, that keep me going. I'm sure that the same can apply to each of us.

There are good days and bad in the world and I thought, why not pay it forward. So I have taken the compliment and shared it and now I'd like to see more people in the holiday and positive spirit.

Whether it be saying something good face to face or through Facebook or Twitter, the challenge is in your hands. National Compliment Day, may not be until January 25, but why wait until then.

I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving and Holiday season ahead.
