Here we are in December, already—the last month of the year! Thanksgiving is past and Christmas is only a few weeks away.

In the week following Thanksgiving I reflect, often, on the things I am thankful for. You see, I'm one of those "softies" that thinks about such things and, literally, gives thanks. I couldn't help but have appreciation for all those who help contribute to ExcelTips. There are even a few who have done so since I started this newsletter back in 1998. (Yes, we hit 25 years of weekly publishing last month.) It is gratifying to me that people find ExcelTips helpful and look forward to receiving it each week.

I hope that you are enjoying the holiday season and that you take time, like this old softie, to reflect on those things you savor and for which you are thankful.
