What a year to give thanks: so much tragedy, so much division, so much hate in the world. And yet we can all come together on Thanksgiving Day and truly be thankful for what we do have.
Our country is still blessed with so much more than what many foreign countries have; we still have an abundance of freedom and choices, and in spite of the pandemic, we have continued to persevere and move forward with grace and hope for better days to come.
I saw this Thanksgiving week “To Do” list on a social media post and decided to adopt it as my own:
- Count my blessings
- Let go of what I cannot control
- Practice kindness
- Accept others for who they are
- Listen to my heart
- Be generous with others
- Be thankful for all that I have
If we practice just a few of these, not only will we be happier, but we will also make someone else feel loved and appreciated. No matter how hard life can get, always go to bed grateful for all that you have. Tomorrow is not promised, so be thankful today!

We wish all of you a very Happy Thanksgiving Day filled with joy and blessings!
