If I had to sum up 2020 with one word, I’d say gratitude. Gratitude for all the little things I took for granted that now seem like a lost memory of a different life. Sometimes it takes something shocking to open your eyes to the world and remind yourself of what truly matters. While the feeling of nostalgia is ever-present, I am now so grateful for all the little things I previously was so nonchalant about in the pre-pandemic life. I did not realize my deep appreciation for the little things until they were taken away. The ability to walk outside without a mask, for instance, and hugging family and friends.
During this unusual Thanksgiving season, we have to reflect on the moments that fill our lives with joy. When we take time to appreciate each precious one, the simplest things take on a new perspective.
As a small business, we at Patronik Designs are so grateful for all the heart-warming memories we have created with our loyal and kind clients. Your continued patronage is so greatly appreciated, especially this year when so many companies are struggling to survive.
Though it’s been a challenging year, make this season of giving highly thoughtful and memorable by sharing your love and appreciation with family and friends. Stay positive and focus on the blessings in your life. Do things that make you happy, like wearing a fabulous pair of earrings or a necklace on your holiday Zoom calls. After all, a little sparkle can go a long way in lifting your spirits.
From all of us at Patronik, we wish you a safe and happy Thanksgiving Day filled with health, hope, and joy.
