This has been a bear of a year. I think we can all agree on that.
I remember when 2020 started and we were all laughing at the videos of Barbara Walters saying "This is 2020." Now, I'd like to kick her in the teeth.
So much sadness and uncertainty. I admire people who have made the best of this. The small business owners who have managed to find ways to survive. The parents managing to work from home and at the same time, school their kids. The doctors, nurses, and first responders who have kept fighting this disease, sometimes against impossible odds. The scientist working so very hard to save us all.
These times have certainly brought out the best in people and the worst. But, somehow we have managed to keep our heads on and muddle through.
None of us know when things will be better. Everybody says they want normal again. Not sure the normal we knew a year ago will ever return. But, maybe, just maybe, a new normal will emerge that is better, more kind, and more patient.
