2020 is coming rapidly to a close and I’m fairly sure most of us are happy about that. This year has heaped a pile of, insert whatever you need to here, that none of us want to see again.
However, I am discovering that in the middle of all the pessimism, I found a deep well of optimism I forgotten I had.
Maybe we haven’t camped in the Redwoods this year like in years past or traveled to over the pass and visited the zoo but I spent every weekend in my house, that I love with my kiddos. We’ve talked, watched movies, gone for walks and played games. Things we don’t always do.
I’ve also spent more time than ever on my knees talking to God and every time I want to complain he tells me to look around. I have a job, a family, a roof over my head, pets who sit on me and love on me and the list goes on. I’m blessed. Each and every time I want to fuss or whine God reminds me there is no need.
2020 may not have been the year any of us was looking for but I’m pretty sure it’s taught us all lessons that we will never forget. I hope for all of you that it’s shown you the blessings you still have, not anything you may have lost.
Happy Thanksgiving from my family to yours. May your day be filled with laughter and love.
