Last fall I kept the spirit of Thanksgiving throughout November by blogging each week about what I was thankful for. I’ve decided that what I need now, in the time of COVID-19, is to remember what I’m thankful for. I’ll be sharing what I’m thankful for each Saturday until I can get my haircut agin. Why then? Because this is going to go on for a long time, so I just picked one random thing I can’t do right now to use as the benchmark for ending a blog series. As you do.
I’m thankful for Marco Polo. Not the explorer or game played in the pool, but the app. Marco Polo is like texting, but with video messages instead. It’s Snap Chat for old people. I am keeping up with my siblings, cousins, and friends all in different chats. We can’t be together, but I feel closer to them even with the distance.
I’m thankful for husbands who go to the grocery store because I just don’t think I can handle it right now.
I’m thankful for a backyard full of play. We had several nice days this week, and the kids and I spent all day in the yard. It was so much fun. They were filthy. They didn’t talk about missing the zoo or the Y.
I’m adding a lot of pictures of the kids in the yard. Mostly so when I’m stressed or thinking about how awful this time is I can look back at this post and remember how much fun they were having.
