Blues Blessings in November

Welcome to November 2020. The clocks are now turned back, new batteries have been installed in our detectors and there is a major election taking place this month. We should always give thanks for what we have, but this month brings it into focus as we celebrate Thanksgiving. Let’s look at the bright side. Hopefully if you are reading this you have some blessings to count, whether family, health, work, or other.
