In a year that so many have had difficulties, giving thanks may be seen as incongruous but is actually more important than ever. Philosophers and religious leaders have long stated that it is important to focus on what we have, our blessings, and not on what we do not have. Once one begins cataloging these, it puts a lot into perspective. These words are not to minimize the losses or pass over tragedy, but life does go on and making the best of circumstances is a good way to live.
We Americans are blessed to live in a country where a vaccine can be developed in record time to fight the Covid-19 pandemic. A country that has excellent health facilities and professionals. One that stepped up to help offset the financial impacts of the economic damage of this health crisis. And there are so many more blessing from living here. Then think about all of your personal boons. Yes, join me in giving thanks. Tomorrow will come and we can all make it better. Stay steady, my friends.
