Reflections in Lockdown

I'm sure we are all spending time reflecting on what is important in life and our wish lists for the future. Top of the list is the importance of family and friends.How sad for those alone in the world. The ability to have and use technology even if it does go wrong The pleasure of getting mail Daily walks A Garden A good supply of groceries The T V and Books. So many things to appreciate that before were just part of a busy life. As for the wish list Time with the family and friends A special holiday in 2022 to celebrate my 70 th birthday A decent haircut and colour I refuse to go.grey.. This are personal things but overall I hope the world is a place but I know I'm being optimistic.

Thanks for voting!
We can only hope that people realise what is really important in life. The lockdown has brought out the best in many. Those who help support the NHS and their own community in so many ways. I'm grateful to the kind volunteer who gets my shopping for me. For my neighbours who keep in touch, for Facebook which keeps me in touch with my internet "family". I'm also conscious of how much we owe to the people who produce our food, transport it to where it is needed. To the shop assistants who keep the shops open. The home carers who care for so, many. The whole of the NHS who are all there for us, working long shifts without complaint and for all the service industries who keep the essential services running.

Sadly there are still those who ignore the current restrictions we now live under. These selfish people spread the virus without regard to how many deaths they cause. They will only learn when the virus hits and kills one of their family. They can only see what they want they've been indulged too much.

I fear that the lockdown will continue for many more months.
