Social media doesn’t show it all.
In this picture you might see a girl showing off her new dress from the high fashion store, “Tar-jay” (i.e. Target).
You might see a smirky smile and a hand on the hip.
You might see someone who has been running regularly for months and is proud of how hard she is working and how far she has come in taking care of herself.
I am scared.
I’m scared, but I’m thankful.
I am so thankful for the medical professionals who are out there on the frontlines fighting this virus. I am thankful for their strength and bravery. And, I am thankful for their family members who are fearful for their loved one, but who selflessly share them with those in need. We couldn’t do this without you.
I was doing really well for really long, but now I can feel my wall crumbling just a little.
It is disconcerting to see our world turned upside down with all the changes happening around us. Things we couldn’t imagine happening just a few days ago are now a reality. Quarantined towns, schools and colleges closed, sports seasons postponed or even cancelled.
