With Gratitude

I hope you were able to relax and enjoy the Thanksgiving holiday with your friends and family, despite the stress and restrictions of 2020. For most of us, Thanksgiving probably looked a little different this year with smaller gatherings, or none at all as everything went virtual.

Perhaps this year was an opportunity to try something a little different than the traditional turkey and stuffing. If your family is anything like mine, the food is amazing, and you always eat way too much of it.

It’s so easy to slip into despair and melancholy with so many things turning this holiday season on its head. When I feel myself getting overwhelmed with it all, I take a quiet moment to remember that despite all the craziness of 2020, there’s still so much to be thankful for.

As for me, I’m grateful for the friends and family I’m still able to gather with, even if it’s not the usual crowd I’m used to. I’m grateful for the delicious food I enjoy, and the love and fellowship that still abides this time of year, in spite of it all. For me, the most important part of Thanksgiving is not the food eaten or gifts exchanged, but the opportunity to take stock of everything we have been blessed with.

What are you grateful for this holiday season?
