I was so geared up for 2020 but look how everything turned out. I didn’t sign up for this. But I have to face it. The truth is I’m never going to forget this time of my life, the time of COVID-19, the quarantine and the lockdown, the time we had to stay home and away from each other to save the world. I’ll tell the story to my children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
If there’s one thing the COVID-19 pandemic has taught me, it’s to not take anything for granted. During this time I’ve reflected so much on the simple pleasures of life that I can’t have now. Things like sitting across from my friends and talking about life, laughing, hugging, going out and walking freely without worrying about catching a virus, sitting in a cafe with only a book as my company. I appreciate all that even more now and can’t wait to get back to it.
But for now I find joy in the little things like being alive and healthy, spending more time with family, having more than enough time to do the things I love like reading. I have time to relax my mind and to think about life.
This pandemic has made clear the most important things in life: good health, family & friends.
See, the future is not guaranteed. Who knew we’d be faced with a pandemic in 2020? We made so many plans but they’re at a standstill because we can’t execute them. There’s uncertainty all around the world but I’ll tell you one thing: We don’t know what the future holds, but we hold on to God who holds the future. We can only hope and pray that things will get better soon. This too shall pass!
