As Thanksgiving approaches, I’ve found something to be truly grateful for.
Our family is idiot-free. There might be a poorly-thought-out tattoo here and there, or that time at the lake when the local constabulary advised us against fireworks, but all-in-all we are solid people.
All our kids, sons and daughters and nieces and nephews, are hard workers, good parents, and thoughtful people who are raising another batch of good citizens.
And we’re all vaccinated.
This was brought home to me yesterday when I heard of a friend (vaccinated) with a non-vaxxer son who appears to have married into a non-vaxxer family. Son’s father-in-law died this summer from Covid, and yet cause and effect is still apparently an unfamiliar concept because the son now has Covid. Oh, and so does his (vaccinated) dad, who’s pretty ill with it.
So yes, ‘when you’ve got your health you do have everything’, but it helps to have brains, too.
