2020 has been an extremely difficult year for EVERYONE. Especially for those who have lost loved ones due to the pandemic, to those who have lost their jobs, who have faced the challenges of stay-at-home living, working and distance learning for their kids, and all of us who could not escape the heated media coverage and personal conversations around politics, elections, racism, and civil unrest.

With all this tumultuous environment of 2020, as we near the Thanksgiving holiday, I find myself taking the time to stop and reflect on the many things that I am grateful for this year. 

First and foremost, I'm grateful for my health and safety, and that of my family and loved ones. Also, I am thankful for my dear friends and family who have brought a great deal of love, support and joy into my life throughout this whole year (often at times when I really needed it!).

Further, I am thankful and extremely blessed to not only be working during this time, but doing something that I enjoy and that I am passionate about.  It truly brings me a deep sense of gratification knowing we at Kavesh, Minor & Otis positively affect the lives of many people and their loved ones. Additionally, I have been able to help many other estate planning attorneys all across the country with their practices and to better service the estate planning needs of their clients and their clients' loved ones.  I couldn't have done this without the amazing group of people that make up my work family.  My thanks go out to Elaine, Arlyn, Peter, Jane, Alexandria, ShantaDee, Jeff, Nate, Mike, Kristy, Kristina, Kirsten, and Roxana, as well as the folks over at Pence Wealth Management who work with our clients and help support what we do for others.  

So, as we wind up 2020 with all of its uncertainties, unknowns, tragedies and challenges, I'd love to hear from you and find out what YOU are grateful for.  Simply reply to this e-mail.  (Even if you just make a list for yourself and don't send it in, that's fine!  The point is to take a moment to reflect on your blessings amidst a time when it's so easy to overlook what we do have to be thankful for!)

Stay safe and Happy Thanksgiving to you and your loved ones!
