As we went about our normal lives, in the time before the virus, it was so easy to take everything for granted. There would be food in the shops, you could meet up with your friends and family whenever you wanted, you could shake hands and hug, and accept that all would be well, with everything you wanted available when you wanted it.
Now that we have had to rethink how we live, assess what and who is important to us it makes us realise how lucky we are.
Each day our post gets delivered, staff stack the shelves in the supermarket, we can fill up our cars with petrol, our bins are emptied. We have water, gas and electricity and the hospitals are there for us should we need them. All of those services are being provided by people who are out there working while many of us are staying at home - how lucky we are.
And outside, the sun is shining, birds are singing, spring flowers and trees are starting to blossom – how lucky we are.
All of this reminds us to be thankful for what we have and not to take anything for granted.
What are you thankful for?
