So this year is a mixed bag for me as far as things to be thankful for. Given the last 11ish months, sometimes it’s hard to remember that a lot of really amazing things have happened to me this year. My debut novel was published, I transitioned to working from home with only one panic attack, I made a decision for the betterment of my health and overall well-being, I got my newest fur baby Gipsy Danger, and I have had the unfailing love and support of friends and family.
I recognize that I have been incredibly fortunate this year while many out there have suffered catastrophes both natural (floods, fires, plague) and man made. The most important thing is to remember that, if you’re reading this, you got through it. There is a light at the end of the tunnel and I have to believe things are going to get better because if I don’t I honestly don’t know if I’d be able to get out of bed in the morning.
Thanksgiving this year looked very different from other years, as I’m sure it did for you as well. It wasn’t the big family gathering traditionally thought of when one thinks of Thanksgiving. For the most part, the family I saw were tens if not hundreds or thousands of miles away, courtesy of Zoom. It was a bit chaotic for sure but being able to see everyone made it feel more like Thanksgiving.
I hope everyone reading this had a wonderful and safe holiday!
Bye for now!
