The past couple of years have been challenging. The pandemic brought a global health crisis, the likes we’ve never seen before. That health crisis turned into a financial crisis, a mental health crisis and a social crisis, where our friends and families struggled to make ends meet, find ways to stay okay and keep our kids socialized through several lockdowns. This Thanksgiving, as I do my annual reflection on what I am thankful for, I find myself creating a small but impactful list.
This list looks different than it has in past years and I’m okay with that. I’ve had a lot of time to reflect on what is really important, as I am sure all of you have. So today, I am providing you with a list. It is blank, but I encourage you to fill it out and share with someone close to you. How did you grow in the last couple of years? What are you most grateful for? How has it shaped you and your future?
Here at LDAWC, we continue to offer support, workshops and programs in support of those with learning disabilities and ADHD. We are mindful of the impact the pandemic has had and we look forward to meeting in person once again. We are thankful to our community supporters and funders who allow us to continue to do the work we do and we are grateful to the families that reach out to us and I am truly thankful to be a part of a community that cares.
Happy Thanksgiving everyone.
