As Joey from my favorite sitcom, Friends, would say-
“How YOU doin’?”
I have written lots of half posts but haven’t actually “published” one in a while.
It’s kind of funny, because we used to be so busy- with work, taking kids here there and everywhere, after school activities… in fact eating meals as a whole family was very rare for us- except for Sundays.
And then Corona came.
By the way- am I the only one that sings “My, my my, myyyyy Corona” (instead of Sharona)?! every time you hear that word?!
Ok, I gotta focus…
Anyway, I guess it’s sort of a blessing that life as we know it has come to a screeeeeching halt. Now all four of us are pretty much together- all.the.time.
I try not to lament and think about what if’s…but today I am sad for all the kiddos and everything they are missing out on in these coming weeks like:
all the musicals and plays that won’t debut
the spring band and chorus concerts that have been postponed or cancelled
the competitions that are cancelled
the spring trips that have been cancelled
the sporting games that won’t get played
every high school senior who may not go to prom
all the graduations that will be postponed
The list goes on and on.
And though life looks a little bit different right now, life goes on, too.
But I am also so thankful that I get a little taste of what life might be like if we were to”homeschool”-
-we get to sleep in every day
-our schedule is less rushed and more adaptable to what suits our family
-the girls are able to help more around the house and with preparing meals
-our dogs are in HEAVEN having everyone at home all the time
-we get to take long walks together and talk about life
-I get my daughters ALL TO MYSELF- a rarity for two busy high schoolers!
I have always been a “glass-half-full” person, so I’m going to make the choice to focus on all my blessings.
God is good.
All the time.
And I’m going to repeat this verse and believe it-
I remain confident of this:
I will see the goodness of the Lord
in the land of the living.
Wait for the Lord;
be strong and take heart
and wait for the Lord. – Psalm 27
