For some this year, it will be easier to be thankful.
Thankful that no one they know or love has perished.
Thankful that things might get better.
Thankful that they still have a job.
Yet for others, it will be more difficult,
suffering for one of the reasons above…
or one of a million others.
Perhaps the greatest gift we can give this season is compassion.
Nothing more, nothing less.
Because for some, that’s what will be needed the most.
