These six-word wrap-ups of the year are excerpted from a recent article in The New York Times on readers’ reasons for gratitude:
The crinkling eye above a mask.
Mom, 87, rocking pretty, pandemic ponytail.
This stinking year is nearly over.
Sunny mornings, a window facing east.
Toscanini’s recording of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony.
Throwing the football with my sons.
So grateful to live in Canada.
I am thankful to be thankful.
Never been social; now I’m good.
I am bored, but not dead.
Ambulance took him. He came home.
Hearing granny laugh on the phone.
It’s just a cold, not Covid.
Our kids, after my wife died.
Wasn’t too late to say sorry.
Faith, family, friends, dedicated medical professionals.
