Our 30th Wedding Anniversary
Today is my husband and my 30th wedding anniversary.
The picture above is from our 25th wedding anniversary
when we went to Alaska. For our 30th anniversary we
had planned to fly first class, cruise in a mini suite and
tour Hawaii to celebrate these wonderful years together.
We planned and saved for this trip for five years.
Instead, my husband will go to work and I will
gratefully care for two of our grandchildren.
Our daughter is our hero, working as a registered nurse
full time in the ICU unit of our local hospital. It is filled to
capacity with Covid patients. So many of her coworkers have
already been infected by the virus. My daughter has been
very careful but we know it is only a matter of time before
she may be infected too. Many of my family members have
been infected with the virus. Thankfully they have all
recovered. My husband, daughter and I talked and decided
it is in the best interest of our entire family for us to stay
away from my daughter and to move our grandkids into our
home until the pandemic gets better or she gets vaccinated.
I went from being in a pandemic slump and disappointed
we had to cancel Thanksgiving, to being excited to cook a
smaller dinner for our grandkids. We started watching
Christmas shows, talking about Santa and even how Santa
will deal with the virus. What a joy grandchildren can be.
Unfortunately I can’t see my other grandson, which I miss
dearly! We were going to my son’s home for Thanksgiving
but now all of our family will stay in their own homes.
Thanks goodness for Facetime!
What a wonderful way to celebrate our 30th anniversary, with
the grandkids and flowers. We can’t go out to dinner, on a trip
or even to a movie, but we are so happy just knowing we are all
safe and healthy. I hope all of you stay safe and healthy too!
