Social Distancing: Spreading Easter Joy From A Safe Distance
A Way To Connect With Loved Ones While Keeping A Safe Distance
I hope you had a nice weekend. There are a lot of holidays around right now: Easter. Passover. Ramadan. Hopefully the holidays give you a nice distraction from everything that’s going on right now.
I know it was for me.
Over the weekend we went and dropped bags of Easter gifts off on doorsteps. We got to say hi to a few loved ones from a safe distance, and I got to see a friend I haven’t seen in nearly a month.
I was able to say hi to my Big Brothers Big Sisters Little, Garrin. I couldn’t get close enough to give him a hug, but I dropped a bag of gifts at his door and ran back by my car so we could talk for a little.
Even though he was more interested in the presents, like any kid would be, I honestly didn’t realize how special it would feel getting to see him even though it was only a couple minutes. We’re in a new social distancing normal right now, and sometimes for me it feels like the entire world is at arm’s length. So I was glad to have the reminder that the people close to me are still there.
I hope you guys are taking time to reach out to people during these springtime holidays.
I asked what you guys are doing over Easter.
Debora is watching out for loved ones. She tells us, “I’ve been making masks for my husband and myself. I have lots of scraps of fabric.”
That’s awesome, Deborah. My mom has been doing the same thing.
