Giving Thanks During COVID

Thanksgiving 2020  

2020 Thanksgiving — like no other!

No big family gatherings

with sister or brother.

Just you & me across the table:

avoiding crowds,

our private “stable.”

We miss our family

while staying strong; no hugs or kisses

or Black Friday throng.

On Thanksgivings past

we ate together: blending families —

a full cast!

Sure is different in 2020;

eating alone amidst

food aplenty.

Celebrating Life, despite the times.

On this hopeful note,

I close my rhyme.



I am grateful for:


T- Time to  read, relax, and choose my activities for the day


            H – Holding onto hope for a return to everyday activities outside the home


                         A An attitude of gratitude


                                    N – No sign of COVID in our building’s residents


                                                K – Kindness of others


                                                               S – Simple, healthful meals


G – The gifts of friendship, family, and health


                 I – Internet connections for meetings (ZOOM)


                               V – Victory over COVID with the vaccine (Hoping!)


                                               I – Interesting info on the environment to make a difference


                                                                  N – Nature’s gifts each season


                                                                              G –  MyGolden Years”

    Wishing a safe, and no doubt smaller than normal, Thanksgiving celebration to my American neighbours. Greetings from Canada’s East Coast – and the province of Nova Scotia and a faithful mask wearer.
