November 25, 2021! Another year rushes past and here we are, sharing another Happy Thanksgiving day 2021 greeting. Thanksgiving, when spent at home, is pretty much “just another day” in many ways since I usually put in some work, which is how I want it. I like being busy and having tasks. I don’t thrive doing nothing or lounging (and yet, believe me, I still get in my share of TV watching). So while Thanksgiving feels different, its meaningfulness is that it isn’t another day in the week. It’s part of why I like treating it normally. Part of my gratefulness is what I can do and so I mostly feel happy to be doing what I do.
As Mr. Knightley would say, I’m not one for grand speeches, but I do, as I try to do every year, feel thankful for life and the things, big and small, we get to enjoy in this life. I’m grateful for new opportunities and trying to make goals; for this space and for anyone who supports it; long conversations and silly or traditional movies; lessons to learn even if the happy is rare; family and for freedom.
On this Thanksgiving day, I hope you’re where you want to be and with who you want to be with. I’m hope you’re laughing and smiling, and I hope you’re celebrating in whatever ways you best love. On that note, I wish you a…
Happy Thanksgiving 2021!
