The fact that 2020 has been such a challenging year is nothing new. As we are getting closer to wrap it up we still have to remember we have things to be thankful for as well. Even though we have had a lot of ups and downs this year. We have had loved ones die, we have had people get sick, we have had major milestones canceled. We have all had stuff change for us.
I don't think there was a person here in the Texas Panhandle that was not some how affected by the recent pandemic. Maybe you lost your job and struggled with finances. You or a family member may have had to miss out on a big event, like graduation, prom, a birthday celebration or wedding.
Have you had a little harder time sleeping through the pandemic? If you have well just know that you are not alone. We have been finding ourselves worrying a lot more. Less sleep, though, really does us no good. In fact it makes it easier for us to get sick. Our immune system starts to get compromised.
If you have pets you probably find yourself talking to them. You probably even find it happening a lot more through the pandemic. Oh and that is alright. In fact it doesn't make you crazy it pretty much means you are normal.
