I’m hunting hard to find five things for Friday’s Fave Five this difficult week when the days all ran together. Let’s see . . .
Conversation. A week ago, on her day off work, my daughter and I chatted on the phone for a couple of hours, took a break, and then chatted for a couple more hours. It was deep and good conversation—the kind I only have with her.
Sunshine. It makes such a difference, doesn’t it? Walks in the park, while still chilly, were made better with the sun shining this week.
Sunrise. One morning I looked up from my reading and saw this. I couldn’t help but exclaim “oh!” at the glory of it.
Coffee and conversation. We can’t meet in our favourite coffee shop anymore, but coffee and conversation in a friend’s living room can be equally sweet (And yes, I know we are under restrictions, but our provincial health officer says it’s okay to visit someone in your bubble in their home if they live alone. And I hate that I feel the need to justify this.).
The moon. Last night I stood at the window, looking out at the moon that seemed brighter somehow. Maybe there’s some astrological thing happening right now, or maybe not—I pay little attention to such things. But the moon seemed brighter and it caught my attention and for a moment I paused and prayed.
There it is. A scant list for this thirty-eighth week of COVID time. That’s almost enough time to carry a baby to term. No wonder we’re all feeling weary.
