My mom called her sister today to wish her a happy birthday. We all sang when she answered the phone. At eighty-something, she is still living alone in her big house. She told us about all the precautions she is taking so she doesn’t get covid-19. During the summer, a couple of her friends would come over to play bridge. The stayed on the porch and wore their face shields. Now that winter is upon us, she figured out how to make the safest environment possible in the house so they can still play, which includes air purifiers. She is such a clever, fiercely independent woman. Even though she is getting cabin fever, she is doing her best to stay safe, connected and social.
I Found God today in my clever aunt.
