So long, 2020….I will not miss you at all

When I got up this morning I had no intention of writing a last day of the year blog.

But this is 2020, and…shit happened. Bad shit…horrible shit…political fiascos and unnecessary death tolls. National unrest…a preventable pandemic…lost jobs…lost lives…lost national respect.

Every month of this year something new and horrible occurred from hurricanes, to mounting Covid death tolls, social unrest. If you had a Bingo 2020 card did you have a box for Murder hornets? Locust swarms? Australian fire decimation? Toilet paper hoarding? The Tiger king debate ( Did Carole Baskin kill her hubby??)

Have you ever washed your hands so much as you did in 2020?

Did you ever think a 70+ physcian/scientist would be the calm in your frightened emotional storm? Anthony Fauci is a rock star in my opinion!

Have you ever felt like hitting people so much who refuse to wear a mask?

Did you ever think about what your friends and family really mean to you  as you did this year because you couldn’t see them?

And have you ever before been thankful for a vaccination shot??

As this year ends – and thank you Jesus it is – I’m looking at tomorrow as not only a new day and new year, but as a new start and a fresh beginning for my life. I’m going into 2021 cautiously optimistic and with a smile because 2020 is gone, dead, and I’m sososo over it!
