I’m a little distracted these days, so unfortunately my writing has come second. However, I’m taking notes because I’m experiencing so many stories that I can use

I’m scared. I don’t want to be sick. My family has taken big steps in social distancing, wearing face masks in public and washing our hands. But the biggest thing I miss, is human touch. The hug of a friend or just the comforting touch of a warm hand. And with the face mask. You can’t see people smiling. You have to read their eyes. How many times have I read the phrase, “they smiled, but the smile didn’t reach their eyes.” You just can’t tell anymore.

I pray that this will be conquered soon, but I realize, just like 9/11, there will be a new normal. How the world has changed since 2000. But we are survivors because we are strong!

Keep the faith!
