Publisher’s Notes

Well, Thanksgiving Day is almost upon us. Like many of you, my wife and I are still not sure what the holiday this year is going to look like. We have missed all the in-person visits and connections. We wonder if we are going to be able to have our kids and grandchildren over for Thanksgiving dinner.

The corona virus has been teaching us so many lessons, for what seems like a very, very long time. We all need to be living our lives while at the same time, being safe for everyone’s benefit. Every family will have to make decisions about how best to manage the holidays. We plan to wait and see how things are looking in the days to come before making a final decision about our gathering.

Even though many of us have been challenged in more ways than one this year, Thanksgiving is still a time to reflect on our lives and circumstances and find what we are indeed thankful for. I am still very thankful for the things and people in my world including you, our Spotlight readership. Yes, life can be fast and crazy, but we all need to stop and smell the roses a little and have an attitude of gratitude. Maybe a good mentality to have would be, “We are working to live, not living to work!” If you are already retired, God Bless you! I do hope you are staying active with purpose; one day I am hoping to join you.

Well, I think it’s time to wrap up these notes for this month, go pull the top off my jeep, and go looking for some roses to smell.

Take Care and Happy Thanksgiving
