This season of “thanks giving” reminds us of all that we can be thankful for. We’ve stood side by side to bring one another through some dark and challenging days. Many of us have lost family and friends. Life has changed in so many ways. But finally, the last few months have enabled us to come together, to gather in person, and to see bright, shining faces and smiles once again.
This Thanksgiving let’s take a moment to think about the gifts and the lessons 2022 has brought. We can be grateful for the simplest of things. And we can be a blessing, a gift to others by sharing a smile or “hello” to a stranger, calling a friend or neighbor to see how they are doing, reaching out to someone we haven’t spoken with in a while. Perhaps we can offer a listening ear or a hug.
We are thankful to all of the families who entrust the care of their loved ones to us. We are thankful to our volunteers for sharing their gifts and time so generously. We are thankful to our donors and community partners who believe in our mission and keep us going and growing. We are thankful to our hardworking staff who are dedicated, person centered, and give the best of themselves each day. We are thankful to each person we serve–they bless us with their spirit, their smiles, and their positivity.
We wish you and yours a lovely Thanksgiving. May it bring back fond memories of Thanksgivings past and inspire you to live each day to the fullest.
