Sometimes things just don’t work how you plan them, no matter how hard you try. Unfortunately , my Christmas tree never made it to the blog last year. Excited my son was coming home for the holidays was high on my list so when he called from a rest stop about an hour and a half away from home sick, everything changed. Running a fever and too ill to drive, my family grabbed masks, hand sanitizer and hit the road. Upon arrival, he was laying against his window appearing lethargic. We motioned to put his mask on and he did. We ourselves masked up, and helped him out of his car. We sanitized the car as best we could. My husband decided he should be the one to drive him home. So, off we went. Once home, “Keeping in mind this could be covid,” we put him in the farthest room away. We are fortunate this particular area has a bathroom and everything he needed to get by. There were no appointments for days to be tested so we did the best we could keeping him comfortable and handing meals to him. Finally, we had an appointment for the covid test. My son was positive but we were not. He received medication and told to rest. Christmas was very different as we sat a chair far from us and he wore a mask. Nothing mattered as long as he was feeling better and we were all together.
The lesson I learned is there will be circumstances beyond my control. If you ever find yourself in a similar situation, say a little prayer, have faith things will be fine and give it to God.
