Missing a lot these days, how about you?
I'm sure most of us are craving some type of normalcy; I want to go visit my mom, however, I don't want to risk her getting sick; I do worry about her living alone though...
I know these are the same concerns that many of you have...most of the time, I can stay positive, infact some of my friends call me "positive Patti", however, I had to pull myself off of social media; it felt like such a burden on my spirit; between the fear mongering and speculation over facts, its just not worth it.
I don't want to think about this going on for much longer; when will we be on the other side of the curve? When will my kids be able to see their grandparents, cousins and friends again? When can my husband's business and my business open back up again and will people ever stop wearing masks, or will the masks be the new norm??
I, like my daughter below, miss my friends...I miss my clients, I miss working...I'm venting yes, because although this really SUCKS right now, there is certainly an upside to all of this; the downtime is something we've never had before; I'm always being pulled in many different directions for work, then many activities for my kids' school stuff, after school activities, then sports, dance, music lessons, band practice, etc. We live a busy life, so to be able to sit, chat, play games, relax, laugh together, watch movies together, eat together and just exist together is making me feel 'full' - grateful. We will most likely never experience this again. I wouldn't mind having the downtime again, however, the uncertainty and sickness I'd mind for sure.
I'm praying you're all healthy, that you're all safe and that you're all finding the silver lining to this downtime.
As I'm writing this, I can hear my daughter belly laughing in her room facetiming her bestie....life is good...not perfect, but certainly good.
