It's better to count our blessings than recount our problems.
This Thanksgiving week - despite the problems due to COVID-19 - let's be thankful.
We can all give thanks for the beauties of the earth and the majesty of the heavens that give us an inkling of the vastness of eternity.
We can give thanks for the gift of life, for our amazing bodies and minds, that allow us to grow and learn.
We can get thanks for art, literature and music that nurture our souls.
We can give thanks for the opportunity to apologize, start over, make amends, and build character.
We can give thanks for our families, friends and loved ones.
We can give thanks for the opportunity to help, cherish and serve one another which makes life so much more meaningful.
We could even give thanks for our trials, from which we learn the things we would not otherwise know.
