I guess the only resolution I can really accomplish this year is to be a better
person and help the homeless and the hungry. That’s a
resolution with which we can all agree.
by Mary Foran
Well, it’s that time of year when we all think about what we’re going to resolve to do in the New Year 2021. But this time around we have Covid-19 to contend with, in spite of the new vaccines that are soon to become readily available.
If I had had my druthers, I would have traveled more—but travel restrictions have scotched those plans!
I would have liked to eat out at restaurants more often—but restaurant closures and restrictions have put those plans on hold for the time being.
I would have socialized more—but restrictions on the size of groups and masks and six-foot distancing have made that very, very difficult. It has even made me somewhat of a pagan as I avoid Mass gatherings!
I would love to go to a play or a concert in the New Year, but who knows when those will be allowed, and as for sporting events—good luck!
I would like to join a gym and get into shape, but those have been locked down too.
I go to work every day because I am considered an “essential worker”, which is good, because at least I have a job, unlike many people during this pandemic.
And so far, I haven’t been struck down by the virus. I already got my flu and pneumonia shot, so I am pretty well protected until I can get the Covid-19 vaccine.
We all have much to be thankful for in spite of the hardships of 2020.
I guess the only resolution I can really accomplish this year is to be a better person and help the homeless and the hungry.
That’s a resolution with which we can all agree.
