“My wishes to everyone are to enjoy the time with one another, however many that might be and to also enjoy whatever it is that you choose to partake of. As someone who was just diagnosed with this virus and one for whom the sense of taste and smell have been lost for which I do not know if they will ever return, count the blessings you have of whatever it is that you eat.”
