Doesn't matter what side you are on people will find fault one way or another. I try to walk in the middle, ignore the drama, remain level headed and focus on the future. This world would be a better place if we could eliminate the bullshit and concentrate on the good. I'm thankful for my husband, our beautiful children, our extended family and our friends . We would like to wish you a great Thanksgiving. #theshinyside #dbcustomleather #thankful
