From the Dragons’ Den
Covid-19 still rules much of our lives and many of our activities. George, Uncle Sam and Idris remain in their cupboard and are, no doubt, feeling rather neglected. However, we press on and optimistically hope that at sometime in the near future, we will be able to meet safely and enjoy our Little Dragon sessions once again.
Gradually, opportunities have been available for some members of our church society to meet for worship in a safely-socially-distanced way, whilst other activities such as Little Dragons and Friday Club are still ‘On Hold!’. This is probably of greater significance when considering the health and welfare of our Group Leaders rather than that of our little people. I must say, on a personal note, that it is rather uncomfortable to realise that one is firmly placed in the ‘old and vulnerable’ group. Quite a knock to the self-esteem. However, there it is and one must be realistic. Just don’t look in a mirror!
In the meantime, we continue from day to day, washing our hands, not touching our faces and keeping spaces; remembering to smile from behind our masks, caring about each other, remembering each other in our prayers and looking forward to calmer, more normal days ahead. (And naturally, singing ‘The Grand Old Duke of York!’ at least three times a day!)
Query: normal – or – new normal?
Every good wish, Val
