COVID Check In

Happy St. Patrick’s Day.  I’m Irish by former married last name.  My middle name is “Midori” which means light green and growing so either way, it’s a good holiday.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!    It’s March 17, 2021.

First, thank you for being in my life.  I appreciate what you do to make it easier.

It’s been a year unlike any other coming through COVID. And I say “through” as a precursor to expected changes that will happen with vaccines and numbers declining. Those who study the numbers say 2022.

My wearing-two-hats life has been cursed and facilitated by Zoom and learning technology.  Students have been eager to learn.  I think piano gives them doable goals. Group lessons have been a foundational part of student expectation.

People are investing time and money into boosting their immune systems.  It seems this horrible virus likes best “weakened” immune systems.  Shaklee, always respected for being top quality, has been in huge demand. People are wanting to be healthy and that’s a good thing. I am happy to help.

We have all lost someone dear to us, be it current illnesses or other reasons and that always carries a long lasting sadness.  So many losses, I feel for those left to be brave and continue forward.

My Cedar Falls grandkids had in-person band concerts the last couple of weeks. That really is HOPE IN PRACTICE! I can hardly wait to see my Texas grandkids in June.  A planned delayed wedding reception from a May 2020 wedding for my Texas son, Marc, will make that possible to see them.

So Happy St. Patrick’s Day.  I’m Irish by former married last name.  My middle name is “Midori” which means light green and growing so either way, it’s a good holiday.

Be well, and know that you make a difference in my life! How are you doing?

  1. Thanks always for your insights, Ann. How am I doing? I also, as you said, “feel for those left to be brave and continue forward.” I’m so glad to have your “light green and growing” self walking with me through this challenging time!
