When Covid first happened I was nervous because the world did not know anything about it. I did not see a lot of hope until later that year. I strangely saw hope when my family got Covid. This was when our extended family members and friends started to bring dinners, lunches, and desserts. Some of them simply stopped by to say hi through the door or windows. I remember my mom’s friend left at the doorstep balloons, cake, ice cream, pizza, and a gift for my little brother’s birthday. He was very thankful and happy. It allowed him to still enjoy his birthday despite the challenges of having Covid. Sometimes it felt like people were bringing food for us every day. I learned from this experience that my family is surrounded by great people that love us and support us even when times were tough.
