Re: I'm skipping 2020

Thanks to all for the condolences. 2020 was a terrible year, but my son's faith is strong. He told me, maybe a month after losing his wife, "I don't understand people who lose their faith when something bad happens. That's the world we live in." We are still grieving, but God is good.

Re: I'm skipping 2020

2020 was, hands down, the worst year of my life. Between DH and me, we lost 10 family members--none of them to COVID--aunts, uncles, cousins, but 3 really hard ones: my mom in April, his dad in May, and our sweet daughter-in-law, 23, in a car accident in June.

Re: Nice people

I think I'm going to join DG. No big deal, but we've suffered a tragedy in our family, and I need to stay away from a lot of media right now--and I usually do bow out during election years anyway. I'll see you all, probably, in January. Stay safe!

Re: The Things We Don't Buy

Count me in as one who does not ever want to live without air conditioning. If it came down to starving, I'd choose food over air conditioning, but it would be a struggle. I don't use fabric softener, coffee, alcohol, pop, or tobacco, but I'm another who will occasionally buy many things if I find t...

Re: Is the Coronavirus affecting you

Thank you all for your condolences! It has been a hard time. We also lost my father-in-law last week. He was also 89. Neither death was due to coronavirus, but both were probably hastened by side-effects of the coronvirus. But God is good all the time, and things will get better.

Re: Is the Coronavirus affecting you

It is sort of a long story, but I believe my mother died (April 10th) because of the shutdown from the coronavirus. I just have to console myself that she was 89 and probably was in her last year of life anyway.
