Emotional roller coaster

This COVID-19 has me on an emotional roller coaster. Every time I see the 12:00 and 7:00 updates, tears well up in my eyes. More deaths, more infected. Our governor finally issued a stay at home order that goes into effect Friday. I really hope and pray this helps. I wish the president would do it for the whole nation, but what am I for wishing? All I can do is my part and pray for everyone.

I read everyone’s posts on Facebook on how they are irritated or pissed off, mostly because school is cancelled and our seniors won’t get to go back to school. I have 2 that will be graduating in 2020. They will miss out on things that normal seniors get to do, awards ceremonies, class trips, maybe even commencement…that hasn’t been announced yet. But come on people get it…people are dying and you want to be selfish and care about feelings and if your kid gets to walk across the stage? Things happen, things change…we must adjust and make the best out of it. Is it really that important? We have all the opportunity in the world to make a difference in our kids lives…after all this is over, we can go, we can do, but for now it HAS to stop!

Just think if you could save one person by staying home, wouldn’t you? What if your family member was sick; wouldn’t you think about things differently?

I had a cruise scheduled for September and today it got cancelled…I was upset for a few minutes, then quickly reminded myself that it would be ok. Things had to come into perspective and I reminded myself to look at the big picture. I will adjust…it’s really not that important. When this is all over, I will go on a trip of a lifetime.

For now, we have to focus on stopping the spread, savings lives, and just doing the best we can. I am thankful that I have a job that lets me work from home, that my family has everything we need right now, and we are all healthy.

If you’re wondering why flowers for this post…well these are my resurrection flowers. They remind me, we will rise again. We will get through this!
