It’s almost U.S. Thanksgiving (I see you Canada, with your celebration last month). As it’s the time in this country to spend time with family and be thankful for what the year has brought us.
So, I thought I’d take a minute to say a few things I am currently thankful for:
- I have not gotten coronavirus
- I am pretty healthy
- My family is all fairly healthy
- I have a home still
- I have a job still
- There is much love in my life
I’m sure there are other things I could be thankful for, but I wanted to be brief and catch the most important things. In so many ways, 2020 has been an awful year. Too many people have lost their lives from this deadly virus. And for their families, this marks their first holiday without those souls. I am sure it is incredibly difficult for them. I wish them grace in these difficult times.
Given how much was lost this year, I am keenly aware of how much I have to be grateful for. I am looking forward to my Zoom Thanksgiving and probably Christmas, happy that everyone I want to be there is alive and well.
So, what are you thankful for as we head into Thanksgiving in the US?
