When life gets busy in the middle of a pandemic and everything starts to look alike, life, and kind souls, offer the opportunity to stop and take a minute to see the beauty right in front of you.
A bright new friend, delivered yesterday — an unexpected gift, a cheerful hello. “Happy still-stuck-in-a-pandemic birthday. Hope this brings some joy today.” It did, but even more because of the kindness behind it.
Gifts are all around, even during a once-in-my-lifetime (I hope) pandemic.
A look back at my March 2021 calendar finds I did things I like to do during the past four weeks — writing events, walking, an art class, food shopping, and cooking. Notably different: all except walking and cooking took place online or through online ordering. That’s something we’ve all gotten used to in the past year, after a March that can’t compare to any other.
