Vaccination Number Two

March 16, 2021

My mother has eagerly anticipated today:  vaccination number two has been achieved! 

Her three daughters have been rather protective.  For the past year, we’ve encouraged her to stay home more often than not.  She’s been a good soldier about it all… and has become increasingly frustrated with the seemingly endless list of things she can’t do.

For her three children, it’s been a wakeup call about just how much those social interactions mean to a person.  During the past few months especially, we’ve been more determined to provide some distractions, to check-in on a regular basis. 

I’m thrilled—beyond thrilled—that Mom is soon gaining her freedom.  But my silver lining has been my increased conversations with my mother! 

Silver Linings…

started as my personal response to 2020’s global pandemic of COVID-19.  When I published them locally,  I was surprised by how much people responded to them.


I hope they bring some positivity to you, too, during this unsettling time
