The year 2020,well where should i start. I mean it’s almost done. Look at us now, what have we accomplished. I mean some of us have done something but for the rest of us, we are still trying to figure what’s right. There is no prove of a working vaccine to end all this. Our lives were mostly broken, some of us were forced to quit working, sleep hungry, get stuck in the house for months till now, nurses and doctors who barely saw their families. This was meant to last a short while but hey look it’s still here. Surprise.
Christmas tides, yes, happy memories, yes. I look at families and I see the love of getting back together. Seeing grandparents getting excited and over doing family dinners. Even with all that’s happening I’m glad no one gets to read my thoughts now and then because they rage out fire and consume each and every tiny muscle that makes a move.
Because it sucks. For a minute I’m happy, for a minute things seem to get better. For a minute I have hope. But in a minute I lose that hope over and over again. This year I’ve spent all the love I had for family, friends and even strangers and sometimes it felt like a losing game where I’m standing on an old wickery bridge ready to jump and give it all up but I didn’t.
2020 what do you want us to do? Do you want us to cry as scream because if we do then we’d never stop whenever anyone hurt or left us. You’ve taken a lot from us. We have judgements yes. But I want to say I’m not part of this anymore because you 2020 have made me and us stronger. We have learnt to love deeper and care for those who don’t even deserve it. Vulnerable we are now.
This Christmas, I wish you all happiness and laughter. Cry tears of joy. For the families that lost loved ones due to corona and any other chronic diseases, I’m sure you only became stronger. God is always with you and he knows your very own thoughts and fears. And this is just a short chapter.
Eat, dance, sing, stay up late, watch those Christmas movies, reminisce on all that has happened, for the classes you’ve missed and the grade you’ll have to repeat. Remember to always pray and to thank God for protecting you and your family. I wish you a good festive season from my family to yours.
2021 is only a few blocks away.
Merry Christmas and a happy new year.
Love Lilian Leticia.❤❤❤
