Life isn’t perfect. Especially right now.
COVID numbers are going up in my province.
There was an exposure at my kids’ school that by the time I found out about it, it was too late to quarantine them.
I spent more money in October than I should have, so in November I am feeling the pinch.
I dropped below the 10K followers that I worked so hard to reach and maintain.
My anxiety level is hovering around an 8 all the time, and I am not sure if I can remember what it feels like to not have a knot in my shoulders.
Christmas isn’t stopped by COVID.
Christmas trees don’t need to go undecorated.
Presents don’t need to go unmade.
Christmas cards do not need to go I sent.
Carols do not need to go I played.
We still have Miracle on 34th St, and Love Actually, and Mickey Mouse A Christmas Carol.
We still have cookies to bake.
We still have tidings of good cheer.
We can still donate to the causes that matter to us (can I recommend that you check out cancer.ca/shop for your holiday needs??)
Black lives still matter
Women’s rights are still human rights.
Love is still love.
LGBTQ2SIA+ friends still need our mama bear hugs.
No, it’s not perfect. Especially right now. But it can still be beautiful.
