Being thankful for a dumpster fire seems like a weird thing.
And if I’m being honest, I don’t suppose it’s the actual shinola of 2020 that I’m thankful for. It’s what that shinola provided.
Think of all the things that have been stripped away during the coronavirus pandemic. We’ve missed out on hometown sports and get-togethers and shopping and parades and … well … you name it.
Many of us have lost loved ones or suffered ourselves thanks to the virus’ effects.
And we’ve gone through much more than COVID-19.
Our nation has seen a nasty election — both sides were ugly — and a media that seemed wildly unbalanced.
We’ve witnessed riots and looting — as well police whose actions have warranted protests.
Through it all, we’ve had a chance to grow. A chance to be better. A chance to focus on the things that matter.
Because apparently we needed it.
