Reasons to be Thankful


It’s that time of year again, friends! The time of year where we reflect on everything we’re grateful for in our lives, and celebrate being with family. For so many of us, this is such a precious time of year. However, as always, there are people whose holidays look a little lonelier, especially during this pandemic. So, in this week’s blog, I wanted to talk about the importance of remembering those people, and keeping them in our thoughts as we celebrate with our families.


I think we can all agree, this has been one of the craziest years to date. It’s definitely put a damper on the holidays, especially when it comes to seeing friends and family. Big gatherings won’t be happening, and for some essential workers, they’ll be isolated at home in fear of passing the virus along to people they love. Some people have lost people to the virus, and will have one less seat at their Thanksgiving table this year.

I always feel the need to talk about this this time of year, because it’s so easy to get caught up in our own holiday celebrations, that we forget about people who may be less fortunate. I encourage all of you to think of them, especially with the craziness 2020 has brought us.


The bottom line is, some of us are so fortunate to be celebrating with family and friends this year. We need to recognize that and be grateful. For anyone who isn’t able to do so this year, please know that I’m thinking of you this holiday season. To all of the essential workers, thank you for all that you do. Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
