November is a great time to look around your life and think about what you are grateful for. It could be something as simple as the meal you had for breakfast, or something a little more complex, such as the friendship you share with your neighbor who always seems to know how to brighten your day. We asked the champions at Life Care Center of Farmington, New Mexico, what they are thankful for during this season. Below are some of their sweet answers!
