I doubt I’d get any disagreement for saying 2020 won’t go down in history as anyone’s favorite year.
This year has been difficult, unpleasant, incomprehensible, disappointing, and often painful. I write this as my wife’s 95-year-old mother and 72-year-old disabled brother are suffering from COVID. I struggle to find gratitude.
And yet my many blessings are still there: The best wife and partner any man could ever have. A beautiful home in one of God’s special places. The love of family and friends. A social media family who each day show me the meaning of compassion and love for animals. Colleagues who inspire and sustain me — and sometimes even laugh at my worst jokes.
So despite everything terrible about this year, we hope you, too, have blessings in your life and have a Happy Thanksgiving!
