All I (Shawn) wanted was an excuse to share the song, “I Will Not Take These Things For Granted” with you. To me it is the perfect Thanksgiving Song – a litany of all of the small, mundane-yet-beautiful things that make up our lives and the memories that become a source of warmth and comfort during hard times. I return to this song often. But that’s just my perfect Thanksgiving song.
So I asked the rest of our staff to chose their Thanksgiving songs, because we all have different songs that encapsulate thankfulness for us in unique and varied ways. Thanks to Hannah Hunt, James Wheeler, Julia Loewen, Clyde Glass, Joy Lusk, Fernando Ebanks, Brett Ashton, and Jayne Burnham for their contributions to this playlist. (And a special shoutout to both Brett and Clyde who said they also would have chosen “I Will Not Take These Things for Granted” if I hadn’t called dibs on it…).
