Thankful during COVID: We Said Go Travel News Nov 2020


Nov News 2020 with We Said Go Travel:

I hope you had a Happy COVID19 Thanksgiving. 2020 has been a year filled uncertainty and changes. I hope that you and your loved ones are safe and healthy and you are taking care of your physical and emotional health. I bought myself flowers and it has made my desk much more inviting. Small changes can have big results! I am thinking about this quote: “The bad news is that time flies. The good news is you’re the pilot.” by Michael Altshuler from Hoda Kotb’s book “I Really Needed This Today!”
