It’s April 1st. Here I am.

It’s really not, it’s April 2nd, but I had this post written up in my notes yesterday. Does that count?

This past month was more eventful than the last 12 months as my teenage son started playing indoor sports again, basketball, because they lifted the restrictions for LA County. I do not like it, but I do not want to be the one to take away his opportunity to play high school basketball so I left it up to he and his dad.

Needless to say he’s been practicing and had his first game tonight. Unfortunately, we couldn’t attend the game due to Covid restrictions and had to watch a live stream on YouTube. It was a real bummer not to be able to attend his first high school basketball game. On the other hand, he did great and we are so proud of him! And I am thankful to technology for giving me a front row seat. Cool!

Him playing with all those kids does not bode well for my anxiety about the virus. Thankfully, today California opened up vaccines for 50 and over and I just make the cutoff. Sign me up!!

I find myself more and more hopeful and I’m so grateful for it. How about you? Do you feel hopeful?
