Effin Pandemic

missing family

thrust into isolation

searching for lost time

trying not to lose my mind

normality drifts away

©️2020 CSNelson, Don’t Forget the Half

Inspired by: Your Daily Word Promt (family); Three Things Challenge/3TC (thrust, drift, mind)


You know, writing about myself has always been a challenge. It's not that I'm unsure of who I am but rather I like people to discover me on their own. I will tell you this much - I'M REAL! I guess that's all you need to know for a first approach; stick around and you'll understand the power behind that statement. What I do is another story! I embrace life hoping to live my purpose as a mother, daughter, sister, confidante and friend; I laugh, cry, and support; I admire, like and love; I listen, read and write. Most importantly, I have faith and thank God for all of me. My intent is to inspire others using my gifts and "Don't Forget the Half" reminds me to cast nothing aside. Want to know more? Discover along with me as I live my life out loud.

  1. I am in touch with my brother in NZ by phone, sometimes email, and sometimes skype. It is rare to hear from my other siblings or family, but then we haven’t been close for well over 30 years, so it’s no different for us.

  2. I try to focus on what I’ve gained during this pandemic but so much also has been taken away. Physical distance from family is probably the worst but at least we have Zoom.


  3. I feel for families who want to be, but can’t be together over the holidays. Hubby and I are used to Christmas on our own anyway, so it will be a normal time for us in comparison.
