Well, folks. We’re finally in the home stretch of the fire dumpster year that is 2020. This has been the longest year ever, and I think we’ll all be happy to be over with it.
With everything that has happened this year throughout the world, it’s probably hard to look forward to the holidays. Here in Albuquerque, we’re currently under another stay-in-home order for the next two weeks. What happens during that time? Thanksgiving.
Worried About Missing Out On Family This Thanksgiving?
Are you groaning over the idea of not being able to spend Turkey Day with your family and loved ones? I’m pretty sure it’s safe to say that everyone in Albuquerque is groaning along with you, this blogger included.
There’s a lot of negativity and grouchiness from everyone over the state of the world, and we’re all looking for something more positive to put a smile back on our faces.
It’s probably hard to be grateful at this time, but now is actually the best time to be grateful. If you’re reading this, you’re still breathing. You’re hopefully healthy and haven’t caught the nasty virus that is COVID. Do you have a roof over your head? Able to pay your bills, even if it’s just barely? Are you able to put food on the table? Do you still have a job?
If you’ve said yes or even nodded your head at any of those questions, then count your blessings and be grateful.
Finding The Silver Lining
It’s hard to find the silver lining and to be appreciative of anything this year. I, for one, can say that I had certain goals and hopes for this year. I was a little bummed when I realized that COVID affected those aspirations, but then I remembered that I’m considered an essential worker. I count my blessings every day that I still have a job have been able to work from home during the pandemic and keep my little family safe and healthy at the same time.
What are you thankful for this year? Is it your health? Are you also an essential worker, and have been employed all year? Are you thankful that you’ve been able to keep your life afloat?
While you’re sitting around your table this Thanksgiving with your immediate family members, remember what is truly important in your life and how vastly different it could’ve been. This is an incredibly hard time for our country, but we can make it through.
