Thankful Thanksgiving 2020… Is it an Oxymoron?

I know this year has been a challenge and a trial for all of us. COVID-19, Politics, Protests, communities (friends and family) being torn apart by differences in opinion and beliefs… 2020 has been a rough road all the way.

Wherever you are, in the USA or abroad, I pray for you. I send healing and love to sooth our tired souls and weary hearts. I send thoughts of healing and peace, gratitude and love. May these “vibes,” “thought,” and “prayers” find you in your struggle and give you strength to keep up the good fight: loving yourself and others, supporting your community in healing, sharing the grief of loss and hope for better times ahead.

That said, I turn my thoughts to Thankfulness, for it is in gratitude that I find my strengths keep going ❤️.

Things I’m thankful for this Thanksgiving 2020:

My family ❤️
  1. A warm home
  2. My little family of 3
  3. All the Thanksgiving Greetings received from friends and family
  4. Cooking Thanksgiving Dinner with my daughter & enjoying being part of some of her “Firsts”
    First Pie (pumpkin) made by herself. First Apple Crisp (made w/no help from me). First time making her Great-Grandmother’s Mac & Cheese. First time prepping and seasoning a Turkey.
  5. Quiet homemade Thanksgiving dinner at home, just us ❤️
  6. Our health
  7. A fun day staying home and enjoying each other’s company
  8. Zoom call with my family: brothers, sisters, mom, nieces & nephews… all living far away from us, and still joining together to share the holiday.
  9. Watching Christmas Chronicles: Part 2 (we loved #1)
  10. Feeling creative again and relaxed enough on doodle.
  11. Feeling some peace for the first time since March.

Wow! The world may be CRAZY in 2020, but there are still pockets of JOY to be found!

Blessings to all ❤️
