As with most years, 2020 has had its ups and downs. However, 2020 ushered in more downs than ups.
COVID hit and the majority of us experienced something we hoped we wouldn’t see in this lifetime.
Now 2020 is coming to an end and I realize that my list of highlights for the year has been over-shadowed by the pandemic. Yet, there are still some highlights.
First and foremost, we managed to stay well.
Lili turned 13 in April.
Naomi turned 11 in June.
Arryn turned 2 in January.
I won’t talk about my age or hubby’s age, but we had birthdays as well. 🙂
We sold our house and bought a new house.
We had some sadness in 2020 as well when we said good-bye to Arryn’s baby brother and our other two foster daughters. Then we closed our home and said good-bye to foster care.
We cancelled some trips that we were really looking forward to.
We had to adjust to staying home much much more than we are used to.
We have missed seeing our friends and family.
I’ve grown tired on on-line shopping. I never dreamed that would happen.
I am more then ready to say good-bye to 2020 and hope the door hits her on the way out.
I’m hopeful that 2021 will bring better things for all of us.
The COVID vaccine is being distributed and will hopefully allow us to get back to some sense of normalcy.
We now have two cruises scheduled for December in anticipation of a better 2021.
We look forward to traveling back to Illinois to visit friends and family this summer.
We look forward to having friends and family come visit us as well.
We are entering 2021 with positivity for a much better and safer year.
To all our friends and family . . . .
May 2021 bring you much love, health and happiness!!!
