Time has a way of sneaking up on you and it passes by so fast that in a blink of an eye it is the end of another year. Well, 2020 can go down in the books as the most screwed up year of all time. We have had Covid-19, tornados, hurricanes, fires, floods and I can’t wait to see what winter has in store. Momma Said, “Everyone always saves the best for last.” And I don’t know which way the best is going to be, better or worse.
None of us has experienced a year like this in our lifetime and I am ready for it to be over. I hope the vaccine works and we can get a handle on this monster. The U.S. has reported over I million cases in just one week and I have no estimate on the world population. I don’t know how the essential workers in the health industry can keep going. There are going to be so many cases of PTSD just as in a war zone.
I still see people going about their business without wearing a mask and I don’t understand why they would put themselves in peril. I see mothers holding their children’s hand to keep them safe crossing the street but neither of them are wearing a mask. Why not think of your children? Momma Said, “Children learn by example so why not set a good one.”
