Everyday my mom calls and sweetly asks what I’m doing.
Sweetly I answer, “Nothing.”
She responds, “I’m doing nothing too.”
And then we both sort of laugh because, well, what can you really do in a pandemic?
But today I added, “I have nothing new to tell you but thankfully I have nothing bad to tell you either. We’re both very lucky.”
Although I get bored and a bit lonely at times, I’m grateful to be healthy. And to have food. And for the roof over my head. And for my mom who checks in on me.
And I’m grateful for anyone who takes the time to read these words. And even more grateful if these words remind anyone to be a little grateful for just a few moments today.
