I spent part of this Thursday morning reading the Times on my cellphone.
Last week, David Leonhardt, editor of the New York Times Morning Newsletter, invited his readers to send him six words describing what made them thankful in 2020.
He was inspired by this form of writing –the six-word memoir– popularized by the author Larry Smith.
Numerous people have responded. Here’s a selection of five out of the more 10000 responses.
I am thankful to be thankful.
I have someone I can hug.
Think twice, decide once: Regret zero.

To be happy, give happy. Thanks.
