My wonderful daughter-in-law just texted me and said their little family isn’t going to her parents’ house like they usually do every Thanksgiving because the parents have Covid right now, so would I like to come over and spend Thanksgiving with them this year, since they’ll be staying in town? 😳
I replied with a gracious thank you, but I feel like I have such a good set-up for keeping isolated, it would probably be irresponsible for me to start taking any risks. I am very concerned about our healthcare workers—don’t want to add to their burden unnecessarily!
It is sooooo hard to navigate the challenges of dealing with this virus AND taking care of those who are feeling isolated and alone. I know my DIL is doing her best to care for those she loves. It feels like denying her efforts is completely antithetical to how we should be caring for one another right now.
