Covid, Care And Cookies
--by mindyjourney, posted Sep 20, 2021
So VERY GRATEFUL that Roger was vaccinated because the virus could have struck him much harder. He started having cold/flu-like symptoms the day before our son and his wife were to fly home from visiting us at our cabin hOMe.
Once Roger tested positive, we alerted them and others we had been in contact with. Thank goodness our son and his wife tested negative and no one else displayed any symptoms.
Self-quarantined since last Thursday, I’ve been keeping my distance, washing hands frequently, sleeping in our camper trailer, disinfecting handles and doorknobs, reading, and spending as much time as I can outside. And of course, taking good care of Roger, who is slowly getting better. The most distressing effect was his loss of smell and taste, but thank goodness that seems to be slowly but steadily returning. Perhaps, those fresh-baked Cowboy Cookies helped heal his sense of taste? :)))
🤗 The prayers and support of friends and family have been a balm during this uncertain storm. Telephone calls and texts, uplifting messages and offers to bring us groceries, come care for us, all have been safe-distance “hugs” of loving-kindness and compassion.
Never doubt that each gesture makes a difference.
Lesson learned, my kind friends, even though fully vaccinated, be vigilant in adhering to safety measures.
We will return to wearing masks in public spaces and being extra mindful of physical connections when we are out of quarantine.
Blessings of health, safety, and the support needed as we all traverse these uncertain and changeable seas.
With a big bow of gratitude and of course, a cookie! Thank you 🙏 🍪!
