2021 has not been the year most of us hoped for. The pandemic is not only not gone, it is surging back. Several locations around the USA have their highest rates of infection ever. This, despite the fact that a safe and free vaccine is available at every drug store in America. During times like this, it may seem like a stretch to be thankful. That said, there is always plenty in all of our lives to be grateful for. So, between the turkey and the football and falling asleep in your easy chair, be sure to pause and give thanks for all the good things in life.
