Yes, even this year, with a horrible virus going around,
I am thankful for many wonderful things.
I suppose we used to take life for granted.
This year it's on the top of my list.
Being alive and being able to share
life with those we love is a gigantic blessing.
Of course, I miss relatives and friends, but I'd rather
know they are snug at home,
instead of taking a chance and being exposed to dangerous germs.
Fortunately, I also have many virtual friends like you, and I imagine you're staying safe!
It's not that I'm oblivious--I'm a writer and I have a great imagination.
I can visualize you with a mask on, while you're social distancing!
Additionally, I can think of about five thousand other things to be thankful about.
What about you?
