We are emerging from the Covid pandemic, and Loretta and I were invited to a fellow teacher’s house for lunch. It was a wonderful time. He’s in his nineties (World War II veteran). I think that as we get older these sociable events take on more meaning.
He’s a recent widower, so the cooking was done by an aide procured by his daughters. The aide is a young man who worked for a caterer in Los Angeles but was laid off by the pandemic. The aide knew how to shop for the items at Uncle Giuseppe’s, and so had the ingredients for an easily prepared Italian lunch of stuffed shells, meat balls and sausage.
With the pandemic the Lord is telling us, straighten out your lives and values, so you can continue to enjoy the things that matter in life.
