It is a challenge this year to be thankful for much. Those of us with our health and fortunate enough to live in communities that take the virus seriously can be happy for the responsibility our neighbors are showing so we can be thankful for our health. We can be thankful for all those who work constantly to try to alleviate the suffering of those who are ailing, pursuing successful outcomes or lessening the difficulty and hopefully returning those who have contracted the virus and other illnesses to their homes while risking their own well being. And our public servants and workers in all professions making effort to ensure our ability to go about our daily lives where possible in a safe manner. The list could go on and on. Even in the best of times there are those working to make our existence better each day that go unseen and unappreciated. If something good came of the current situation it would be an increased appreciation for these folks and others without whom day to day living would be less enjoyable. I am always thankful for these neighbors, both who I am acquainted with and not.
And, as you might expect, I am thankful for moments like this.
