While this holiday season is certainly different, I feel very lucky that it's still been a source of light and a cause for celebration.
While we sat around the table on Christmas morning with our sugar highs, we appreciated how lucky we are and gave thanks for family, friends, our health, and all the comforts we have. As challenging and dark as 2020 was, I have been heartened by the humanity, too. From healthcare workers to delivery people, grocery store workers to teachers, and many, many more - so many heroes showed up during these unprecedented times to keep us going and inspire us with their bravery. It was also great to see social media being used in a positive way to connect with one another and provide much needed distraction; I truly appreciated people like David Lebovitz hosting daily Instagram lives as a way to connect. On a more local level, touching base with friends, and smiles and waves from neighbors on the street as we went for our walks helped brighten and lighten the days.
Like everyone else, we are really looking forward to saying goodbye to 2020, as we look forward to 2021 with hope for a much better year. Here's to good health and happiness in the New Year. May 2021 be a year of light, filled with reunions, gatherings, laughter, and freedom! Let it be peaceful, kind, and fair, too. Cheers!
