Second birthday in pandemic,
88 cases and 3 deaths this week,
reminder that my double shots
weren’t party drinks,
but sobering reminders that
the older we get,
the more precious are the celebrations,
adapted to the twists and turns,
changes of plans,
and universal obstacles,
testing resilience, and connection to others,
Showing the lifesaving worth of a simple yearly greeting.
Thank you all for being part of my support system,
as hopefully, I am part of yours.
