In a previous post, I wrote about how (like most others) I have been virtually staying in touch with friends and family while sheltering in place. Two of my video conference groups have included a weekly guiding question to keep us on track. That’s right – homework!
The assignment for today’s virtual meetup was to share a series of photos that personally summarized the past seven days. This was a perfect project. This past week, Richard and I opened up our COVID bubble to visit with family. On this trip, we were able to see three of our four sons, our daughters-in-law, our grandchildren and our granddog. (Our fourth son stayed with us for the month of May. We were able to patch him in on video, and connect with my niece by phone ). We were also able to spend quality time with my parents. I did errands with my Mom, while Richard golfed with his brother. We then both caught up with his sister (Happy birthday to Sharon). Despite my worries of keeping all of my loved ones safe as we emerged from our bubble, the in-person reunions were incredible. They instantly crystalized everything/everyone for which I am most grateful.
Years ago, a sage friend stated that the meaning of life is ‘relationships.’ I couldn’t agree more.
As a bonus, I was able to stock up on a few more books. My reading supply has been running low. Oh yeah, that’s SNOW in my collage. Real snow in June!!
How were your past seven days?
