The theme of 2020 is definitely a theme of not gathering together. It is heartbreaking, isn’t it?
This year instead of going to a beach someplace and renting a house to share with our sons and their wives for Thanksgiving we are staying home. Erin and Aaron are staying home. Micah and Wendy are staying home. It is what we all need to do this year.
Am I happy about it? OF COURSE NOT! I want to see my family just like everyone else but traveling right now is just not something I am willing to do. Everyone has to decide what is right for them and while I question the safety of some of the choices being made for holiday travel I have to hope that people have weighed all the options and are doing what they believe is correct.
But I am still going to be surrounded by my family. I will have them all with me at the table as you can see. Kind of hard to see but look closely at these pictures and you will understand.
Sure they won’t be there in person but at least I have pictures of everyone in the family that will be watching us while we eat our Thanksgiving feast for 2. Plus we will also have a Zoom session to celebrate later on in the day. Seeing people on video chats really does help with the loneliness.
2020 will be a year to remember and I am trying to continue to foster my attitude of thankfulness. Come back tomorrow to share our favorite Thanksgiving blessing of 2020.
