Don't forget about the ones who continue to social distance.
That's my plea.
They want to see you.
They want their kids to play with yours.
They still need you.
They still love you, support you, and care about you.
And they hope and pray you feel the same way about them.
But they just can't bring themselves to do it...
to take the risk.
And that's not cowardly.
As much as your choice to reclaim some normalcy isn't selfish.
To each their own.
To each non-judgment.
To each an uber amount of understanding and grace.
None of us know how much longer we'll all be on this crazy, pandemic-themed ride, but what we do know is that taking on dang rollercoasters — like the witch that is COVID-19 — is better with friends.
So reach out to the ones that haven't reached out and engage the ones that have.
And please remember,
we don't have to get together to be 'in this' together.
