"Be Kind, Someone Needs It."

We all had a long year because CVOID-19 SUCKS! I miss my friends and family so much, but there are still ways to bring people kindness and love when you can't see them so closely.

1. Send someone flowers or another gift

People loving gifts during the pandemic and it's good for small businesses too.

2. Text or call someone to literally say hello

When a friend gives me a phone call just to check in, I know I am not alone during this crisis.

3. Or even video chat

I set up video calls with friends - it's not the same as in person but it will do okay for now and will show others that you are keeping in touch with them.

4. Send a card

I sent holiday cards and just greeting cards this year to help people cope with the pandemic and they were so popular that I made more to send out.

5. Have a social distance date

See your friends, but be smart. Keep in touch when you can but social distance and don't let your guard down.

6. Host a virtual get together

Invite others to get together to show support through video chats. I had a virtual reunion with my friends who I met in Israel and it was a blast.

7. Donate

Now is the time to donate money, food, clothes, anything as people are being laid off due to COVID-19.

8. Thank workers

Individuals don't always have the choice to work from home, especially nurses, so be thankful.

9. Show patience

This thing will end soon, do your best, and be patient with others.

10. Be kind to yourself and others - BE NICE!

Just be nice - everyone is going through hard stuff.

Be Kind. Always.

When Amy Coney Barrett was sworn in by the Supreme Court, she insisted overturning Roe v. Wade wasn't on her agenda. That landmark case made it possible for pregnant people across America to legally choose whether to have an abortion. There are many reasons a person would want to terminate their pregnancy. Money, age, health and sexual assault are just some of the reasons a person would choose to get an abortion.

The girl who was supposed to be forever

You become best friends thinking you’ll never leave each others side, that bff’s literally means forever and ever. You pick someone and you click. Random trips to wherever, tons and tons of photos. You spend years building a relationship and a special bond thinking it’ll be there when you’re gray and wrinkly. The endless nights staying up and talking about anything and everything, the stupidest things. Meeting each other’s families, calling their parents yours. You plan your whole life around theirs, future kids being besties and houses next door to each others.
