“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”~Mark Twain
So much information swirling around us in this pandemic. Myself, unable to concentrate at this time trying to take it all in. At last, I am ready to pick up the pen once again. With the caveat, simple and to the point.
As you know, the pandemic is complicated. Furthermore, single parenting is convoluted. Now, put the two together. Consequently, no words can appropriately describe the situation without it being a mere understatement. For that reason, I will share this with you:
The valuable lessons I learned as a single parent…
In sorrow, I found real love.
In hardship, I discovered who I was.
In vulnerability, I gained compassion.
In oppression, I mastered defending the oppressed.
In injustice, I learned to stand up for justice.
In grief, I landed hope.
In darkness, I searched for light.
In brokenness, I reached above.
In suffering, I found God.
In God, I found life.
Life is temporarily different during this pandemic. Fortunately, this will not be forever. In the meantime, we care for ourselves and our families. Secondly, we trust and believe that all things work for good. I can’t think about tomorrow, a week from now, or even a month away. I only have today. For me, I look above for guidance. And that is enough reassurance for me.
Peace to you always,
“The two most important days in your life are the day you are born and the day you find out why.”
