Well folks, it’s finally 2021. We made it. This past year has probably been the worst year that most of you have ever experienced. I know it’s been mine. Businesses have had to close down, leaving both the owners and employees suffering. Some businesses could re-open eventually, but some have had to shut their doors completely. People have struggled with isolation which eventually can lead to depression, alcohol, drug addiction and who knows what else. Birthday and anniversary celebrations ceased, and weddings got postponed. No longer were you allowed to visit your loved ones in nursing homes and hospitals, leaving the elderly scared and lonely for their family. Funeral hugs are gone. And the poor school kids. These innocent creatures suffered the most. They were denied the two things that kids need the absolute most: their friends and socialization.
Now, we at the Co-op were deemed essential, so we were luckily allowed to stay open during this pandemic. We followed all CDC guidelines, wearing masks, sanitizing and keeping social distancing to the best of our capabilities in our store. We were very fortunate to be able to still serve all of your needs.
So, even though it’s a new year and we are still plagued by COVID 19, there is some light at the end of the tunnel. Vaccines are now being made available to those who want it. With that being said, there is hope that 2021 will not be such a disaster as last year.
So, this year, have you once again made a New Year’s resolution? Are you going to try to lose that weight again? Are you are going to try to eat better? How about starting that gym membership? These are the top three of what a lot of people say they are going to do… But do they actually do it and succeed at it?
How about this year we focus on a new type of resolution? A resolution to become a more positive person. A resolution to become a nicer and kinder person. A resolution to this year plant some beautiful flowers! Or maybe this is the year you finally plant that garden you have always wanted. How about a new hobby such as bird watching? They have the cutest bird feeders at the Co-op, which you can fill with their many varieties of bird seed. How about planting a tree, either a fruit bearing one or just a regular tree? Try to get back in touch with nature. Trust me, it will make you feel great and peaceful.
The Marshall County Co-op is the perfect place to get the help you need to start your new resolution(s). Our employees have the expertise and knowledge on gardening, planting flowers, bird watching and so much more. And they love to help people!
So, call the Co-op to talk about your plans and how they can help you. Or stop by to chat.
SO, let’s start this new year off right with a new outlook in 2021. We can do this together!!
Happy New Year
