Covid has landed in my household.
I have to admit, it frightened me.
Thank God for vaccines and boosters.
We all had our jabs.
Still, it scares me.
Eldest daughter has mild symptoms.
A scratchy throat is what prompted the testing.
One out of four turned out positive.
Three of us show no symptoms at all.
Stuck at home to ride out the tide.
I am grateful it’s not a serious hit.
Just the discipline of riding out the wave.
Glad I’m a home person.
I can deal with quarantine for number of days.
However, I must admit that I am struggling with my mind.
The thoughts that come to surface stress me out.
The what if’s.
When will this end?
I have to be strong and block off thoughts about dad.
I can’t see him and hold his hand for now.
Thinking about this gives me a headache.
Sleepless nights tossing and turning.
I’m not sure actually what I am fretting about.
I do wish the tide mellows and this ride comes to an end soon.
