Mother's Day During Covid

Cathy Zimmer

Mother's Day during Covid looks a little different.  Having to adjust to your loved ones not being together around the table or in a big gathering is not the norm for most.  Depending on circumstances, there are video calls, Face Time and Zoom that allow you to see each other and interact in real time.  Gifts can be sent or dropped off but I look forward to the time when friends and family celebrate together in person.  Nothing replaces a hug and kiss.

It is an easy decision to protect our friends and family members and the community which is our extended family.  I'm so happy the restaurants in our area have allowed indoor dining and an increase of percentage of customers allowed with additional outdoor dining and takeout.  Our gyms and hair salons are open .    We support our local businesses as much as possible especially during these times and truly appreciate those who are essential workers. 

Crisis has a way of making you look at things differently.  Those everyday things we took for granted don't seem like little things anymore.  At some point in the near future (I hope) things will get back to what was normal. Family and friends getting together, Grand Parents and Great Grand Parents can go back to holding babies and pinching cheeks!  

We wish you a happy, healthy Mother's Day!!
