Reflecting Pieces

I think every blogger on the planet is writing about the tragic and strange times we are living in.  I miss seeing the smiles on people.  Masks may keep us safe, but they are a deterrent to social interaction.  Although I can say with a smile I know quite a few people who like masks for this exact reason!  🙂

And then, the social distancing.  It makes me feel like I’m standing on hopscotch squares waiting for my turn.  Although that was a lot more fun!

Be kind to yourself.  God has this!
