Thanksgiving is pretty much around the corner. Many people enjoy spending time with family and having a delicious meal together. It’s often a nice occasion and really gets you to be around those who love and care about you. However, we may have to celebrate Thanksgiving differently this year due to COVID. Although this is the case, it shouldn’t stop us from enjoying a nice meal with your close family or friends; just be sure you follow COVID protocols to keep everyone safe. It also shouldn’t stop us from being thankful about anything. Here are somethings I am thankful for and that most people would agree with.
Family: Whether it’s your blood relatives or a family you chose for yourself, you’ll always be thankful for them and the support they give you. It’s an amazing feeling knowing you have people to lean on during any situation. Being thankful for family is something most of us agree to.
Food: Now this is something so many us are grateful for. Food is one of the things that keeps us going throughout the day whether we work a 9-5 job, work on large assignments, take care of family, etc. Having food in our systems gives us energy to keep pushing and get things done throughout the day; since there are so many types of food, there’s an unlimited amount of choices to pick from. I’m hoping for some mashed potatoes or Mac&Cheese this Thanksgiving with my family!
Good health: This is something I feel many of us take for granted. This year really made many of us worry for our health and trying to make sure we didn’t get infected with COVID. Thankfully there are still those who have made it through the year without getting infected; which is something to be thankful for. I took my health for granted many times before and these past two weeks made me realize how strong my body was when I unfortunately caught COVID. I don’t blame anyone for this, I’m just thankful to still be here and still pushing forward through thick and thin. For that, I am truly thankful for my good health.
