Given new guidance from the CDC, I hugged my daughter Carolina yesterday for the first time in a year. We are both fully-vaccinated as she was in the now-unblinded Moderna test, God bless her! We were masked and outdoors. Still….holding and being held. I noticed and reveled, which is my intent, to FEEL these firsts as they return.
And this little bee is beckoning me too, “Come play, Aunt Penny. Come play!” Teary now. Flooding with gratitude.
