Sunday May 10th 2020
It’s about six o’clock on a crisp spring morning, actually a little too crisp for the tenth of May. Mr. Sam and I are watching the plethora of creatures out the windshield of Thunder this morning, we have been feeding the birds which has brought us a variety of birds, cardinals, blue jays, finches, chickadees, morning doves, as well as chipmunks, red and black squirrels, bunnies, and of course a raccoon that caused some havoc trying to disassemble the feeder. Now I have to bring the feeder in at night and take it back out in the morning.
The activity at the feeder has almost been too much for poor Mr. Sam as it seems to be very tiring watching all the creatures. And as Sam sits on my lap this morning, I can’t help thinking about how tough it is for him seeing all this activity just a few feet away, and he is captured here in the coach.
And just like many people right now who are trapped in their homes, and are unable to celebrate this day with their mothers and other loved ones. What a crazy world we are living in right now, listening daily to see what store or service that is going to be allowed to open next, hopefully that things will be normal soon.
So to those that are lucky enough to still have a mom alive and well, please take the time to tell her how much she is loved and appreciated, but as hard as it seems right now, keep her safe, as there will never be a more precious person in your life. We live in a world where there are so many ways to stay in touch safely through technology, save your hugs until the time is right and it’s safe. We have never seen anything like this pandemic before, the loss in lives has been devastating, and the economic pain is just starting to be realized, but both will change our lives forever.
In closing Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there, you are truly the backbones of our society, many going unappreciated way too often, so a single day to celebrate you just doesn’t seem like enough … just saying.
