Thanksgiving: a time of reflection and gratitude in the face of challenge

Friday, October 9, 2020

Fall leaves

So much of 2020 has been beyond our control, and we have by times naturally focused on limitations and restrictions, the uncertainty and loss of the people and opportunities we miss most.

With numbers again climbing in several regions, this celebration of thanks is coming at a good time; a moment to take a deep breath and focus on the parts of our lives that bring us joy.

Early in the pandemic, the OMERS Community shared a post on Practicing Gratitude. There’s a very simple checklist in this post that might help you focus as you reflect.

Please, stay safe and continue to follow local government and public health guidance. You are not alone, and this will pass in time.

On behalf of everyone at OMERS, we wish you a healthy, Happy Thanksgiving.
