Some are not so lucky, living alone , near "locations of interest" or with family member or friends who have tested positive.
Something which I find disturbing is the way that some people are taking sides - to vaccinate or not, wear masks or not, believe the government or not etc etc. Like it or not we are all in this boat together. Judging or labelling others is not going to help anyone.
For my part, I'll try to do what I can to remain positive and support my friends and family. Worrying is a useless activity so we're trying to avoid it :).
Robbie and I have begun a daily zoom reading session with our grandies (and the odd parent!) which is proving to be very rewarding. I thought that they'd all wander off bored , but no , they curl up and listen happily to NanNan and Pop reading to them. Hour long sessions of "The Hobbit" are number one! It also gives their parents a chance to have a little break- lockdown with small noisy, busy kids is no picnic!
Hopefully life will settle down again soon , but maybe the reading sessions may even continue when lockdown ends?
I hope that you find ways to stay in contact with friends and whanau - people are what matter most.
:) stay safe, Jan
