Hi!  It’s me!  Lily!

Lily is still a little sad today. 

Last night, Dave and Sabby ordered dinner in.  They knew the people who had the virus, and were a little sad themselves, so we didn’t go anywhere and Sabby didn’t feel like cooking.  She did the dishes and went to bed early.

Life with the virus is kind of normal to me because I didn’t have any memories before, but it’s still sad to see how people are affected.  A lot of people in my church didn’t want to get vaccinated, they had some good arguments and some bad arguments, but now several people are in the hospital fighting for their life.  And for what?  Sabby was very insistent that we get vaccinated – and my social workers made sure I got it too.  I was a little sick for a while, but got over it.

So now we wait.  We wait to see if other people at church get it, and we wait to see if these people recover.

I don’t understand life, but I hate death, and I hate the virus.  I want to Lily-stomp it, like Sabby did to that Karen.  But what are we to do?  We’ll just live our lives as best we can and hope for the best.

I went to bed early too.  Beth knocked on my door and asked if she could join me.  She didn’t want to be alone.  I let her.  We snuggled up and said goodnight.

I was half asleep when I felt Beth shuddering.  She was crying!  Poor Beth.  It’s been hard on her, this virus thing.  So I just held her tighter and let her cry.  Finally, she fell asleep.

I couldn’t, though.  What else is going to happen to us? To the world?

At least she smelled nice.  It was nice to finally fall asleep with the smell of her hair in my nose.

Today was just school.  Beth gave me a hug this morning and thanked me for letting her cuddle me.  I kissed her forehead and told her I love her.  She smiled, and then went off to do her schoolwork.

Love you all!!! ❤️ And remember every day could be your last 🙁
