Where I am, there is snow on the ground and the temperature is a bit cold.
Our teams are manning the antibody infusion tents for those with mild to moderate Covid19. These same team members are also getting their vaccines to protect their patients, colleagues, friends and family.
So there appears to be hope on the horizon.
I look at this season and recall the heartbreak and sorrow we experienced throughout 2020, but I also find the moments of joy that may or may not have occurred in spite of (because of?) everything.
Birthdays, weddings, graduations, etc may not have been as expected but they happened. The significance of the events was not diminished by the method in which they were celebrated.
I will not pretend that the “good” things outnumbered the “bad” things in 2020.
But I will acknowledge that I am here today.
You are here today.
And it appears we have made it to the end of 2020 and will hopefully awake on the morning of 2021.
The holidays may be different this year but there is so much to be thankful for.
Permit yourself to smile, sing and laugh.
