All were wearing special masks that al- lowed them to play trumpets, clar— inets and even flutes. As a flutist myself, I wasn’t quite sure I could play wearing a mask. Being in a sparsely populated, so- cially distanced auditorium and lis- tening to a concert played by masked teenagers was a new experience. However, this seemed more “nor- mal” than watching a livestream at home a mile from the school. They all left the building with a cookie in a plastic bag as a treat. The next day I was on a ZoOm call talking with colleagues from around the U.S., including southern states that had weather emergencies re- cently. One person talked about frozen pipes and water raining in her house as a result of the extremely cold weather and storms. Another talked about having no electricity for days.

We have been very fortunate to remain COVID-19 free for the past couple of weeks. As I look back over this year we are approaching a full year when COVID entered our world. For the most part we were COVID free due to following guide- lines and diligently setting our minds to thinking that we would do our very best to keep our home safe. Though it has been a tough process, our staff has done a remarkable job! We were so supported throughout this year by this community and our surrounding communities. Our days were brightened by your small acts of kindnesses. We were blessed with outdoor concerts, baked items of all types delivered weekly, home- made cards from daycares, schools and church groups, haircuts by staff, grocery and pharmacy deliveries, flower deliveries, toilet paper dona- tions, homemade pillows, and the list just goes on and on. Every act of kindness was high— lighted and greatly appreciated by staff and residents. It was a tough year but it is fun to look back and see all the love that was spread. Things are getting back to normal slowly. March is here, so that means we will hide shamrocks again this month and hope that this year the residents can find them.
