Routines and Reaching Out

It feels strange to carry on, holding on to ‘normal’ as best we can.

Keeping up with the news. Working. Homeschooling. Checking on family and friends. All the while, the world is changing in ways that are hard to comprehend.

It seems strange. All of it.

Silence isn’t always empty. Sometimes it’s filled and there’s no room for words. I try to speak and write beyond facts and logic, but I can’t. Images swirl in my thoughts. But I can’t hold on and let go at the same time. I can’t find words.

Life is like that sometimes.

So instead, for better or worse, I’ll focusing on routine. Logic. Facts. I’ll finish my posts about Character Development and Autism. Most importantly, I’ll be praying for all of you and our global community, and continue looking for ways to help.

I wish I had more words to offer, but, ironically, I’m a writer who struggles to communicate. A doer and a servant at heart.

If you’re also seeking ways to help, here’s an article by the Washington Post with a list of suggestions. Also, BP is offering $0.50 off per gallon of gas for first responders, doctors, nurses, and hospital workers (check it out here). If you know of other opportunities to help, please share in the comments.

Take care, friends. Sending you prayers and virtual hugs.

  1. Thanks for the inspiration & encouragement. It is a strange time of fear & uncertainty . My son school district is officially close because of COVID1-19. He won’t see his friends till next school year, that is if we win our battle against the virus. Everything is changing , work, family dynamic of social distancing. As a health worker , everyday is day one of quarantine for every possible infected patient . It is a sad time but we do our best to stop it. Stay safe.
