Celebrating the holidays during COVID-19

Its 2020 which means ANYTHING can happen, good or bad. The holiday’s this year, specifically Thanksgiving and Christmas in the US, will likely be a little differently than normal for everyone. 

This year for Thanksgiving, my family and I have decided to not do the big gathering like we typically do with extended family. Instead, we are opting for a more “intimate” feast with only our close family. Personally, I am looking forward to the quality time…especially after feeling COVID-19 has robbed me from creating so many special memories this year. 

Working in skilled nursing is hard because of how careful we must be when we do decide to get out into the world. I have missed nearly the whole first year my nephew’s life, birthday parties, vacations, the list goes on. Despite all of that, I know things could be so much worse, so this year, I am thankful for mine and my families health and I hope that everyone can find a way to celebrate regardless of what is going on in our crazy world!

Can you think of what you’re grateful for this year?
