When this is over


I've been in a funk the last few days. We have been isolating ourselves for about three weeks now. This is such a strange time.  I realized that I had to change my thinking so this morning I got down on my knees and I prayed.  I thanked God for His help getting me through this surreal time. During my talk with God, I asked Him to help guide me in changing my perspective. I realize that I need to be grateful for this time of quiet, for this reset me for me, my family, and really for our world. Maybe this is what we needed. A pause. 

When this is over, I will hug, my God, will I hug. I will inhale the scent of the people and things that I missed. When this is over, I will take advantage of every moment of freedom I have to just go to the market and not worry if someone sneezed on an avocado. When this is over, I will absorb every bit of Mass. I will be happy to watch my two year-old play with friends and share cheese puffs with each other. I look forward to cleaning off her little orange fingers with water rather than sanitizing gel. 

When this is over, I will tip my servers twice the cost of the meal. I will relax in my seat on the plane and instead of isolating myself with earbuds and an eye mask, I will happily listen to my seatmate's stories. I will make every effort to be kind and sprinkle kindness and grace wherever I go.

And I will hug and I will hug and I will hug.

Until then, I am going to do everything I can to ensure that we ride this out as healthy and as HAPPY as possible. I hope the same for you too.
