I feel very fortunate that I have not been visited by the many misfortunes that have affected friends and acquaintances (and total strangers) during these past few months.
- Jeffrey's pension and annuity checks still come in every month
- We're both still receiving our Social Security deposits
- We've had more chair work than usual coming in and keeping Jeffrey occupied
- We have had no health issues related to the Covid-19 virus
- Jeffrey and I have still received virtual (and in-person) medical care during these past months
- We've enjoyed having two of our 13-year-old grandchildren weekdays since March
- We enjoy checking in with all four of our adult kids each week via phone
- I've been able to arrange grocery deliveries from various sources
- eBay sales have been relatively steady and the Postal Service has done pick-ups of my packages most days
- I've found all kinds of interesting items to order on-line (including various types of face masks so that we can protect ourselves and others)
- Our home is secure and no unexpected issues have occurred
- Our favorite Sunday morning activity of going out to breakfast at Uncle Charlie's Finer Diner has resumed. (Yes, it's the little things that mean the most right now!)
However, we are unable to go on our usual adventures. Two vacations canceled for 2020 (so far) and a third (planned for December - repeat of our circumnavigation of Australia) looks like it will not occur. Actually, I'm sure I will cancel our reservation if the cruise line doesn't cancel first.
The one thing that I truly miss the most is HUGS. Good, old fashioned, loving hugs!
The bottom line - Life is (still) good! I have to continue to count our blessings and try not to complain about inconveniences.
