Doesn’t that title sound like a cheer you would hear at a sporting event? When I typed it I kind of typed it in a sing songy way. Perhaps this pandemic has gotten to me. Our family even has a cheer for Baby Theo. Aaron and Erin made it up .
Baby Theo. Clap clap. (wait) Clap clap clap.
Yes, we might all be a little weary of the pandemic but the pandemic has also encouraged us to grow in areas that develop things and strengths that we did not know we had. We all got skills we didn’t know we needed.
I learned how to make bagels. Of course I wrote about it here.
I have read more books and become quite happy reading as much as I can. My “To Be Read” list continues to grow larger and larger.
My husband has become a digital marketing guru and his consulting business(es) are going great guns. I hear all about digital transformation, digital ecosystems and how to integrate systems all of the time on his Zoom meetings. He has also become a master at cooking—er DoorDash and curbside pickup.
Our daughter in law, Erin, has become a professional at doing dip nails. She does a really great job and always has great looking fingernails. Time and money saved by not going to the nail salon, right?
Lots of folks have become puzzle experts. While that isn’t in my wheelhouse yet it might be somewhere down the road.
Staying at home more and focusing on perhaps a simpler life has allowed all of us some new opportunities to do some things we may not have made time for before. I am good at wasting time but I am trying to be a bit more intentional and do some worthwhile things as well. We have another food drive coming up next week and it always feels good to give back to the community in ways that are needed.
Tell me – have you learned any new skills or perfected anything during the pandemic? I would love to hear what you have learned during your Covid 19 experience in the comments. So please, Comment for a Cause for Copeland Oaks Library.
