If there were ever a year to remind us not to take things for granted, it’s 2020.
With our busy lives, it’s easy to lose sight of what’s truly important and overlook the benefits of gratitude.
During the most challenging times, shifting focus to what we have to be grateful for can make a major difference in our outlook.
The phrase of the year, “We’re all in this together,” has different meanings to different people.
While we haven’t all experienced 2020 the same — and some have suffered devastating losses — we are in this together in that we are here to support and lift each other up.
We may not be physically together, but we don’t want anyone to feel like they have to go through this time alone.
Going into Thanksgiving, we’re feeling especially grateful for a business community that rose to the occasion — implementing vigorous safety standards and working around the clock to ensure our destination was a safe respite for people to visit.
We’re also thankful to have such a talented hospitality industry in our area — especially when it comes to culinary delights!
Take a break from cooking this year and spend more time with family.
It’s been a tough year, treat yourself and your loved ones!
