Count your blessings

I am counting my blessings more now than ever before.  

I never thought we would be having to stay at home or at least 6 feet apart at stores of all kinds, including the supermarket, because of a pandemic. I will never again take for granted being able to attend a church service, visit someone at the hospital, eat out at a restaurant, attend a funeral, attend an auction, go to a beauty shop or just hang out with friends.  

I greatly appreciate our truck drivers, healthcare workers and all business employees who are there for us at the stores that remain open for our benefit. We would not be able to purchase the things we need in daytoday life without these men and women who come to work each day. We also would not be able to get the healthcare, when needed, without workers who come in at the hospitals, nursing homes and other healthcare places.  

I am just thankful for the blessings, that I have been given, especially for the companionship of my Chihuahua, who I named for my hero in music, Hank Williams Sr. I wish God’s blessings to everyone today, tomorrow and always!
