Winter solstice has passed, and we are now getting just a little more light each day. Soak in some sun when you can. The natural Vitamin D does wonders for our mental and physical health.
I’m sure many of us Zoomed through the holidays, seeing the family we love only through a computer screen. Knowing we are all keeping each other safe by not being in the same room. We even zoomed with family we don’t normally see on the holidays. Family we normally move through the holidays with just a text wishing them joy. Some family we zoomed with a couple times because it was so nice to “see” them the first time.
It’s about time to get back to the grind of our not so normal life. Back to work and back to school, back to regular meals at home, back to each day looking like the last as we stay home to stay safe. But now there’s more light with vaccines being given. We discuss where in the line we will be able to get the vaccine. As I see Facebook posts of friends who are healthcare workers getting vaccinated, I smile. I am glad they are able to be protected as they work to care for the rest of us. I am hopeful that as more vaccines get approved, more can get vaccinated and then return to a less socially distant life.
As we move into the colder months, likely with more snow, I wish you all health and happiness. I wish you virtual time with family and friends. We welcome Karen Hager back to Heritage to share her RE enthusiasm with us! I look forward to seeing your names and faces during service, knowing this community is together and there for each other.
Virtual hugs to all!
