Just like Amy Grant, I have my own grown-up Christmas list this year. And even though I can’t sing it in-tune, here’s what I’ll be asking Santa for:
Our frontline healthcare workers have risked their lives fighting COVID-19 and working to keep our communities healthy. It’s important that we recognize their sacrifices, dedication and passion working around the clock every day without fail.
I’m celebrating in spirit this year, meaning I won’t see my extended family or loved ones outside of my immediate household. That’s why I’m hoping for a special and memorable day with the people I care about and looking forward to next year when we can all be physically together again.
COVID-19 has taken a hit on our community. From small businesses to families in need, we could all use a little bit of help after this year. I urge those who can to donate, support local businesses and show as much generosity as possible to the place we call home.
What’s on your grown-up Christmas list? Let us know on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
