Let’s Be Thankful For The Many Blessings Of A Lifetime
We are coming up to our beloved holiday season rich with traditions in a year that is anything but traditional that will definitely pose challenges for many. Thanksgiving is the holiday that traditionally draws families and friends close together. We cozy up around the dinner table with our traditional feast to give thanks for the many blessings bestowed throughout the year. And, while COVID-19 may change the way we celebrate this year, it is my sincerest hope that it won’t change why we celebrate. Even in the midst of this pandemic, despite the many challenges, we still have many blessings that we’ve enjoyed over our lifetimes for which we can give thanks in this unprecedented year.
If you are still above ground and breathing, you have much to be thankful for this year. There are far too many who do not have that option. Despite the enormous struggles so many people around the world are facing, if your business has taken a hit, but you still have a business, you have much to be thankful for. If you’ve been put on furlough or are indefinitely unemployed yet remain healthy, again, so much to be thankful for.
Even if your family cannot gather round the same table together this year, let’s be thankful for the many ways we have of seeing each other on our digital devices. Risking the health of loved ones for one traditional meal may not be worth it.
Everyone is facing challenges we never imagined we would be dealing with. Many may be facing the loss of loved ones. No matter how difficult the challenges seem at the moment, we are resilient, strong beings and we will get through this. Counting our blessings and appreciating the life and love that has been bestowed upon us is how we will overcome this and any other challenge that may come our way.
May you and your family and loved ones continue to be blessed, and may you remember and bring the lifetime of blessings you’ve enjoyed to this year’s Thanksgiving celebration.
