Life is full of turns, sharp edges, shades, and experiments in color. In other words, your life is your art. Make the best of it. And remember to be kind.
I spent several moments recently, staring at a picture I took last fall of my five grandchildren. I saw glimpses of their parents, of myself, of their other grandparents, and most of all I saw the unique character of each of them. Each child is such a treasure to me and to their family, though not all children are so lucky. Not all are appreciated for their particular abilities and future contributions.
I know each of my grandchildren can grow up to be a blessing for our world, perhaps an inventor, a doctor, a good parent themselves, a poet, an artist, a mathematician, or a teacher. They will not be held back because of circumstances beyond their control. They will thrive and they will contribute to our planet in their own way. I wish that for every child, though sadly, I know that won’t always be the case. It would be if every grandparent had their way.
I am so looking forward to getting my Covid vaccine. My niece is fighting her way out of the infection right now. She has underlying health issues, so this has been a scary fight and she is lucky. I pray she isn’t a “long-hauler.” The post-holiday surge has put a damper on our plans to travel and camp, for a little while. Either we need warmer weather so we don’t have to go so far, or vaccines.
I continue to study my french lessons every day in the hope I can go to France sometime in 2021. The wedding celebration we had hoped to attend there this summer will probably be postponed for a second year in the wake of so many unknowns around the virus and the vaccine timetables. Once it is safe to travel, though, I am off!
