Not too many people are talking about the positives of 2020, are they? Let’s change that and come up with a huge list of positives of 2020. I will start and then I expect YOU to add to the list in the comment section.
One. Streaming options of things to watch have seemed to have blossomed and there is never a lack of something fun to watch. Chris and I just finished up watching Endeavor (all 8 seasons). I am rewatching Call the Midwife which I stoped watching a couple seasons ago so I still have new episodes to watch.
Two. Increased letter writing and phone calls. I have tried to up my number of real letters written and I know I have received a lot more than I usually do so I think there are others who are doing the same. Nothing like a card in the mail to bring a smile to my face. Of course I have had more time to make cards as well which makes me happy.
Three. More time with my husband has truly been a blessing. Limited traveling for him means more time with me and we have made the most of it. We have discovered a lot of great little trails and places to visit locally that have made us feel like we are still traveling. Even if it is just looking out our backyard it reminds us of how much we love time together.
Four. I have been reading and reading and reading some more. Early on during the pandemic I found it difficult to concentrate on reading but then I somehow managed to kick that lack of concentration and I have enjoyed reading a lot of really great books. My bookshelves and Kindle overflow with options. How wonderful.
Five. I see a lot of people joining together to support one another. I have been so happy to be a part of several fund raising efforts for our community and have another one coming up the first weekend in November. It feels good to give back to others especially when the need is so great. I have found several like minded friends and that makes all the difference. We put a plan together and set egos aside and just work on the project at hand.
Six. We have discovered a new appreciation for those who serve others. From health care workers to those in the restaurant business to small business owners of all types – people have rallied behind them and supported like never before. My hope is that that does not end once the pandemic is over.
Seven. More MAKSIM! Being home most of the time means more time with my beautiful Siberian kitty and we all know how much I love that.
