As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I am reminded of how much we have to be thankful for, even in the midst of trying times. It's very easy to look at 2020 and think only of the difficult things the year brought, but I hope this season of thanksgiving gives each of us the time to reflect on all of the good we have in our lives and the hope we have in our country.
History says the first Thanksgiving was celebrating in 1621 at Plymouth, Massachusetts, and the tradition has carried on in America for centuries to follow. Even in times of hardship, Americans pause to celebrate the holiday and express gratitude for our blessings. It is a part of who we are as a country, and this year, maybe even more than normal, it is important that we continue this tradition.
Our families, our friendships, and our faith are reasons we can all be thankful. Whether you are celebrating with your household or connecting in new ways, I wish you and your loved ones a safe and blessed Thanksgiving holiday.
