I am so grateful for vaccines.
Ontario is finally opening back up again, and I was able to see my family. I haven’t seen most of my siblings since December of 2019.
I haven’t seen my sister K since my Aunt Della’s funeral, which was November 9th, 2019.
That’s 600 days.
Six. Hundred. Days.
I finally saw them this week. I cried when I saw L and she was able to meet and hold W.
I got to meet my beautiful new niece and see my brother J.
I got to have an outdoor visit with my brother D and my sister (in law) T twice.
K and I just screamed and hugged for a long time. Oh, I’ve missed hugs.
We spent an entire afternoon laughing and talking and eating. (K’s Coca-Cola Chocolate cake is LIFE CHANGING. Honestly. You don’t even know.)
We couldn’t all be together at the same time, but we’re getting there. This week felt like a small slice of normal, and I was SO grateful for it.
Never, ever again.
So, yeah. Today I am so, so grateful for vaccines.
