December is a time for reflection. And I have plenty of time to do that this year because there’s not much on our December calendar. No Christmas parties. No First Night celebrations. Just virtual appointments with various doctors and a lot of Zooming around.
December is also a good time for telling friends and family how grateful you are for having them in your lives, especially this year. It’s been a long time since I’ve hugged a friend. I miss that.
I hope that next year will be better, but we have a lot of work to do. Healing our divided country will not be easy. Distributing new vaccines efficiently and equitably and persuading people to take them will not be easy. Choosing priorities when there are so many things to be done will not be easy.
We’re almost done with 2020. Thank goodness. It’s been an interesting year. Let’s hope that 2021 will be less so.
