We are approaching the end of February and it has been a long month here in the UK as our lockdown drags on. I am bored! My children are bored. We miss our friends and our social lives. We are staying cheerful, however, and it makes me smile to see little acts of kindness in odd places.
For example, a friend decided to deliver bunches of daffodils to people last week during the school half-term holiday. I was working in the garden when she appeared, and it was so nice to see familiar faces and remember that we are not alone. Our daughters had a quick socially distanced play on the drive and then they had to go, since we are still not allowed to socialize in groups outdoors. When they return to school, they will be in the same class together, but we don’t know when that will be yet. For now, my daffodils sit on the windowsill bringing colour and fresh energy into our living room. Lockdown won’t last forever, and we will be with our friends soon.
We are the World BlogFest (#WATWB) focuses on positive stories no matter where they’re found. It is all about spreading peace and humanity on social media. All participants post on the last Friday of the month, sharing a positive news story that contributes to making our world a happier, safer, and better place to live.
You can find more about #WATWB over on Belinda Witzenhausen’s blog.
