Keep your promises for a joyous holiday

We did not have the Easter feast.   We did have a far away visit
from one sweet person on the other side of our fifteen foot porch,
and that was delightful.  Very, very cold.  But delightful.

My promise to myself this year has been to write my blog
every day -- no exceptions.  So far I've passed the 100
mark, and it's been mostly smooth sailing because of you.
I feel you out there helping me, commenting sometimes,
posting your beautiful work and thoughts.

Whatever your holiday this weekend, I hope it was wonderful
despite this pandemic, and all that that entails.  Please
keep your promises to stay safe, and social distance.
We need to end this, and the experts say that's the
only way.  That and a vaccine, which will take a
minimum of a year to develop.

On the streets now in our quiet neighbourhood it looks
like something out of a scary movie, with everyone
walking around either masked, or side stepping other
people by a country mile.  Hard, hard times.  Stay
safe, stay happy and promise to see this through
with me.  I will see it through with you.

Have a loving your life day.

Hello Barbara,

So nice to see your paintings and encouraging words in these days of despair.
