Lost Time

In this lost year, we’ve missed parades, holidays,  graduations, travel, hugs and so much more. We also have learned how to see family on our phones and have work meetings without leaving home.

We learned to ration TP and hand sanitizer as well as wearing masks.  I guess it’s silly to talk about things, it’s the lives lost that is devastating.  We have lost the time that would have been spent with all  our friends/family.

It may be easier to count our learned stuff and not the lost. Still miss hugs the most. Where do we go from here.
