2020

What a year...loss of my dear cousin, my father, and the pandemic...  Never in my lifetime I'd imagine going through all these at once.  I miss my father and cousin and think of them everyday. They live in my heart and memories and many times I wish it's a dream I'm dreaming and any day any moment I see them strolling through the door, call my name once more...

A piece of my heart is missing; it's laughter replaced by sadness and grief... I try not to dwell too long but if I go there..that's what i find waiting for me...no matter how long this lifetime will be.  I'll be forever sad for this loss/this grief.    Now, all I can do is hold on to precious memories.. 

W/ a loss- you never get over it... You honor their memories, them, by living your best life the best way you know how, cherish each moment/each other, making memories ..

before the sands of time run out..

Sorry for your loss. Losing anyone we love is never easy. Make them proud by being the best that we can be.

We are still going through the pandemic and the numbers are going up daily.  Right now Arizona, CA, and FL has the highest counts in positive rates and death.  Positive rates in my city is rising too and a few people I know tested positive and some even landed in the ICU.  Also, I have resume my normal work schedule at work and it's a little uneasy.  Yes, we're all wearing mask but still after seeing so many people in one day....I keep my fingers crossed.  I don't want to sound like a pessimist  but we are in a Pandemic and can't help being careful.  People are dying..

Yup, it's scary.  I'd rather that the country shut down, everyone continue to social distance, and let the virus die out before we return to normal.  The risk just isn't worth it.  It's a tough time.  Kids need to be in school but it's better for them to continue distance learning until everything is safe.  We need to make sacrifices sometimes and I think this is one of those times where mankind needs to learn to make sacrifices.
