Today, 1 June, was the last public holiday before Christmas. That means that every single long weekend this year has passed and every single one we were restricted from traveling.
Not too long ago I had planned a trip to South Africa, the South of France, and Romania, that all would have been completed by now. Instead I’ve seen a bit more of the Netherlands, and I suspect that is what I will see for the rest of the year as well.
At least I have so many blessings in the form of friends, family, video calls, hobbies and a job that I can continue doing.
In this strange time, so many businesses are affected and people are affected in so many ways. My sincere prayer is that they will weather this storm and we can all help build each other up now and in the years to come.
I often wonder whether this pandemic brings out the best in people or the worst. One day, in time, we shall see.
Be kind. Stay safe
