It’s Time to Write a Thank You Note

We should show gratefulness every day, but Thanksgiving gives us a friendly reminder to sit down and think about what we’re thankful for. Here is my most important thank-you note (to an unexpected recipient) for 2021.

Dear Pandemic Restrictions,
Thank you for showing me that slowing down can be a very healthy way to live life.

Thank you for teaching me that time spent alone can be very rewarding, and that I can be my own best friend, biggest fan and strongest asset.

Thank you for reminding me that eating out at a restaurant on a night I’m too tired to cook is a treat to be thoroughly enjoyed.

Thank you for giving The Mom & Caregiver the ability to feed 3000 families who really needed it during the pandemic. It was an honour.

Thank you for pointing out that every second of a hug or embrace with family should be cherished.

Thank you for making me realize that some of the best times are get-togethers with friends where we all reach into the same chip bowl with salty/cheesy fingers and share stories until we cry with laughter.

Thank you for pointing out that grocery shopping is a luxury I should enjoy – that picking up a piece of fruit to feel if it is ripe is a pleasure.

Thank you for showing me that I really do love getting dressed up, putting on lipstick and smiling at other people when I go to meetings, concerts and events.

Thank you for making me realize that even though it can be difficult, visiting a sick friend in the hospital or at home is one of the best ways to help another human when they need it most.

Thank you for reminding me that travel is an honour – that so many people work very hard to ensure a bus ride, train trip, airplane flight or hotel stay is a safe and memorable experience for a guest.

Thank you for allowing me to live in a country that values health and safety, where masks, hand sanitizer and vaccines are available to us.

Thank you for teaching us about how valuable our health professionals are – these heroes have sometimes been forgotten and we shouldn’t let that happen again.

Thank you for our readers and advertisers that have kept The Mom & Caregiver going strong through a pandemic. We are forever grateful.

Love Sabina
