The phrase comes to mind as we are facing this hideous pandemic called Covid-19. As all of us who have been deemed non-essential are sheltering in place, we are called upon to cordon ourselves off from friends and family and really life as we know it.
It’s tough being by myself. This would be a lot easier if I had Sam here with me. But life goes on. I catch glimpses of normalcy when I’m out with the dogs and hear the birds singing in the morning, when we’re lucky and the sun shines, or the breeze turns warm. This is new territory for all of us and we must cope. For all who are suffering from loss, you are on my mind, your burden is heavy and the days are long. Prayer works wonders, God is with us…
This just in..cleaning out my purses and found a $10 bill in one..things are looking up!
I am so fortunate to have friends who are looking out for me as I am one of many vulnerable to this hideous virus. I haven’t had to venture out for groceries other than curbside pickup and quite often people check-in to see what I might need and drop it off for me. It’s hard for me to realize that I am at this age and considered at risk. But we all are having to get used to a new normal. These are scary times and very surreal. Please don’t for a moment think it is being over blown…to do so is putting yourself and everyone else at risk.
Right now it seems we have been quarantined forever and it’s only been a few weeks..I look forward to when we can be together again and see what our new normal is because I fear things will never be the same.
