Oakland North visited a few spots in town to talk to residents about the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. Ranging from family to nice weather, we found Oaklanders had a lot of things to be thankful for.

    I’m thankful for the gift of FORGIVENESS….to forgive someone I believe abandoned me physically and/or emotionally is therapeutic, it benefits me far more than it benefits the other person. I have learned that holding on to resentment from my past is toxic and emotionally harmful to me. No matter how hard I tried, it spilled over into other relationships. This was something I struggled with and could not deal with on my own. I am very thankful for making the decision to ask for help and for having the strength to push through the pain….ultimately freeing MYSELF.
