Pragmatic Technologies for Life and Business Success®
Laurel and I had a truly humbling experience last Friday night while leading worship services for the residents at the senior living facility with which we have been associated for nearly 10 years. Being that we are only there once a month and we were approaching the holiday, we focused on Thanksgiving and its meaning. For many of our friends there, this year will be yet another Thanksgiving inside the building, separated from family, as Covid restrictions are back in full force. They have suffered through the pandemic, isolated, many of them sick, and tragically, many passed away.
So, what can they be grateful and thankful for we asked? Together, we combed through the worship liturgy for clues. We all agreed on the following list of things we found in prayer, for which we say thank you every day, without having to search very far or delve in too deep.
For all these things and more, our seniors shared that gratitude is found in each breath, each day and in living fully each and every day even as they know their days are waning.
We have a lot to learn from them and for that, Laurel and I are truly grateful.
