BC19, before Covid-19, I wanted to join the ranks of the multilingual and planned to study the rhythmic tongue of Español and immerse myself in the spicy culture and stifling heat of the tropics over the summer.
BC19, we co-worked, dropped kids off at schools, went to breakfast ate new restaurants with friends and expanded our pallets and boundaries.
BC19, life was simpler. We counted time differently. We discounted last hugs, kisses, and conversations so easily. I was just getting my international air kiss on the cheek technique down to a science.
BC19, which seem to come on all in a single day, we met with friends, had great discussions , over delicious food, about the blessings that were bestowed on us to be in a place such as this at this time.
This was the time before the panic, the pandemic, and the loss of countless lives. This was the time before the scavenger hunts for masks, sanitizer, Clorox wipes, toilet paper, and bleach. This was the ultra clean period were we washed the skin off our hands and sanitized our souls with chemicals.
In the time of Covid-19 let us not forget the importance of that last kiss, the last hug, and the last conversation with a friend. Let us not forget what it means to fellowship. Let us not forget that each day is not promised and that we must make every second count.
Let’s count our blessings, count our health, because that is the true wealth, and count on each other as we get through this pandemic together.
