Thanksgiving, 2020

 It's different, this year. But despite the changed situation, we can still find things for which we are thankful. When I looked out this morning, I saw the American flag flying, as it always has, from the stanchion attached to the front of our house. There may come a time when we can no longer fly our flag, but until that day, Old Glory will be displayed, symbol of the freedom we enjoy.

Our Thanksgiving Day meal will be a bit different, but we'll still eat it in gratitude--gratitude for our family (near and far), gratitude for enough and more when there's so much want around us, gratitude for the freedoms we take for granted. The political climate, the changes necessary because of the "plague" that surrounds us, the situation in general--all these things affect us, but we can still find things for which to be grateful. I hope the same applies to you all.

See you next week.

BTW--the Kindle edition of my novella, Silent Night, Deadly Night, is priced at 99 cents for the next month. Happy holidays.

I walked the dog down to the cemetery and back. The autumn oak trees towered over us. The Blue Ridge were misty gray shadows of themselves. I am grateful for all that beauty.

It's rainy and cool here, so doubt that I'll get out today. But rain or shine, I still have lots to be thankful for.

2020 has been an interesting year, to say the least. I'm thankful I haven't taken Covid, and none of my family has, although I have friends who have had it and recovered.

Looking forward to 2021!

It's got to be better...and if not, we'll make the best of it.
