August Reflections

Updated: Aug 26, 2021


August 1 news augurs gloomy days ahead.

A dear aunt texted that her daughter's brain tumor surgery has been cancelled. MRI showed numerous growths, and the situation is beyond surgery. She will be moved to a hospice. Her daughter is only 38 and has two young children.

Another family friend contracted Covid and has not been responding to texts and calls.

A family friend suddenly passed away August 1 after having sniffles for a week. It was something no one thought, not even the deceased, was serious. It was Covid.

Covid numbers are rising almost everywhere in the world due to the Delta variant. And I've been telling everyone that this is the best time to go out, travel, and gather. After all, the vaccines are in full strength and the weather conditions are not conducive to the virus growth. I guess I am wrong.

It is during these tough times that we are once again reminded of the temporary state of life, our immortality, and of the need to nourish our spirits. Because it is only with God where we will find strength to face and deal with all that's going on around us.

May God continue to protect and bless us all.
