Thanksgiving Day celebrations are going to be very different this year for many families, mine included. When I was invited to be a part of a zoom meeting I politely declined. I felt that it would trigger more of a feeling of isolation knowing that I could not join another household for a dinner that would ensue. Then my nephew Scott called. He would come up from Bonney Lake that afternoon, join me for the zoom meeting and bring some food. I only would need to bring the dinner rolls. That generous offer changed my disposition. True thankfulness ensued. Yes, there would be masks & social distancing but there would also be some semblance of family. My prayer is that we make the most of this holiday season. It will be different. However there still is much to be thankful for, namely family, friends, our faith, and especially God’s love and care for us. I am thankful for all of you. Your words of encouragement mean a great deal to me. Have a blessed and happy Thanksgiving.
Our Thanksgiving Day mass will be at 10 am Thursday. You are invited to bring food for your table to be blessed as well as food for our local food bank
