This year has been quite a ride for everyone. Many of us suffered not just physically, but also financially, emotionally, mentally and spiritually. I have lost some friends & family members, not only from COVID but also from the systemic failure in providing healthcare for all during such trying time. Imagine declining care for a possible stroke patient because they suspect she has COVID. Where else can we go?
Chadwick Boseman has passed away today. It is devastating. He was so young. Is there such thing as being old enough to die anyway?
This photo circulated some time ago, it has become a meme saying ‘Black Panther’ to ‘Crack Panther’ — people should really be more compassionate instead of immediately making fun of others. We don’t know anything about what’s going on with their lives. And now, we know why he’s lost weight & we’re all sorry.
Chadwick did not die of COVID but we should always remember, COVID still exists and still kills people everyday. We should keep following the safety precautions and we should not ignore the importance of social distancing. I know we miss our friends and families, but we still haven’t gotten rid of this pandemic; it’s better to be safe than sorry.
I am grateful because despite the many unfortunate things this year has gotten us into, I still can say that God has blessed me with great people. I have my parents, siblings, husband and son whom I get my strength from. I am also happy because God has given me friends who continuously send positive thoughts and words of encouragement… This reminds me to thank Pooja for remembering me on her post #BloggersSupportBloggers
I have posted a similar blog about this one and you can find it HERE.
The bloggers I want to appreciate on this post are:
Mr Bump is one of the wittiest bloggers I have met in WordPress. I love his sense of humor and I am happy because he actually reads people’s blogs. I appreciate that about him. He posted something funny today and since I am such a fan of jokes, as usual, it cracked me up, “I want to die like my father, peacefully in his sleep, not screaming and terrified, like his passengers.” – Bob Monkhouse
Sean is your go-to person if you need some words of wisdom. His experiences in life as an executive, a teacher, a husband and as a father will somehow enlighten you especially if you’re up to it! I wish he can have a coffee with our President and you know, have that mandatory ‘small talk.’
Vanessa is a 29-year-old wife, mom to a princess, fur mama, occupational therapist, volleyball coach, and Disnerd living in the Bay Area, CA. She enjoys sweet treats, strong drinks, and romantic walks through the aisles of Target. I love how real she is. She is a new mom so expect nothing but joy from her!
Melanie’s blog is one of my favorites because her posts are witty, honest and funny. She loves answering Q&A’s and her answers are raw and undisguised.
I follow this blog because like Victoria, I am also a mom and I know the lengths one will go in order to fight for their kids. I pray to God that she receives the justice she seeks for the death of her son and that she can finally have peace of mind and comfort she deserves.
There’s still four months remaining in 2020. I am hopeful that next year will be different! Thy will be done!
