You know, if there’s anything that the last year of pandemic living has taught me, it’s to appreciate the little things in life.
One of the greatest thrills I’ve had over the last 12 months is whenever a parcel is dropped off at our house by any delivery service. It doesn’t matter if it’s something fun that I ordered, like a new dress, (I will confess to having ordered more clothes than I probably ought to have, especially when you consider the fact I currently don’t really have anywhere to go), or something mundane like dishwasher detergent (I think part of the reason I order household staples like that instead of buying them at the store is so that the doorbell will ring when the package is delivered!). I get so excited when I hear a truck pull up in front of the house and a box hit the porch.
I am so thankful for all of the people who have worked so faithfully to deliver necessary as well as unneeded but desperately wanted items to people all over the country, even all over the world. There’s no way they can know just how much joy their deliveries have brought me whenever they broke up the monotony of another day of isolation, social distancing, and complete boredom, but I know how much I appreciate the work they have done!
