“Working at Gratitude”
I have never been a superstitious person, generally speaking, but 2020 has certainly made me (if possible) even more cautious.
As the holiday season gets underway, shopping may look a lot different this year because of the COVID-19 pandemic. When choosing retail stores to visit, Dr.
“Freshly Baked Bread” “I’m going to bake bread!” my husband, Peter, announced. Inwardly, I said, “Oh, no.”
This will not be a new statement from me—not even in this column—but it is one that has remained frustratingly relevant throughout the course of a virulent 2020: COVID-19 is not the only virus we are failing to fight in this country.

I believe our Thanksgivings are inherited from the ages past and are a mixture of thanks to God for bounties of food, for peace, and for future benefits.
