From my last celebration there has been a lot of loses. My assistant at work left to pursue a degree in IT. Our cat Koko died of cancer. A dear friend of ours suffered a brain aneurism two days before Christmas and died. Then a pandemic virus came along to change normal. But, I have a new assistant that I am training. We got a new kitten named Bobo. We’ve helped a widow adjust and we have adjusted to virus avoidance. I am very happy to have quit smoking, this part never goes away. Part of me feels that my chance of surviving if I were to contact the virus is vastly improved.
