Well, we did it. Thanksgiving is over. Black Friday is done, and we are now in full on holiday mode!
This year is going to be different than any other before. The holidays are so special for so many different reasons, but this year we are living in a different reality. One most, if not all of us, have never faced before.
That being said, it doesn’t mean that it has to suck.
I always take time on Thanksgiving to reflect on all the things I have been thankful for throughout the year, and I will admit that this year it has been a little tough.
But I still found some!
I got up each morning this year.
I continued to write and to work and was able to talk with friends and family. I am so grateful that I can say that.
So, let’s remember to enjoy the season as much as we can. There are so many things we can still do to make is special! Video chat with loved ones and sing carols!
Pile into the car, grab some hot chocolates and drive around to see the lights. It’s a safe way to enjoy the beauty of Christmas!
Don’t send out cards this year to the people you talk to. Instead, how about sending those Christmas cards to a retirement home? That small gesture might just mean the world to someone.
Yes, things are going to be hugely different this holiday season. But we can do our darnedest to make sure that it is STILL a wonderful, magical time of year!
Don’t you think we all deserve it?
No matter what holiday you celebrate, do something to make it mean something this year.
More than any other year, we need to do something that might just inspire someone.
Be safe. Be happy. And know that we will persevere!
