BEING GRATEFUL

DURING A TIME OF SELF- ISOLATION AND SOCIAL DISTANCING NEW LIFE BRINGS HOPE TO A END OF HOPELESSNESS AND DESPAIR

As I stand in line on a windy day to get groceries at a supermarket, I thought that I would put my time to good use and do some self-reflective writing. I’m in good health and mind. My family has had some minor set backs (no one is homeless), and thank God no one has passed away from this horrible COV-ID19 virus.

In fact, I should count my blessings. About 6 weeks ago, I became a grandmother to twins (fraternal – one boy, one girl). I also have a older grandson who is a little over 2 years old. I had my trip all planned in January of this year to visit in April. Purchased an airline ticket and was headed to Charlotte, North Carolina (or so I thought). And boy, was I disappointed. You see I am a worker – my spirit is calm when I am working. I was going to assist with my older Grandson Cairo, while my Daughter and Son-in-law could tend to the newborn twins. I felt really bad about not being there to help out. In my mild state of depression, I thought maybe I should think more positively. I am glad that I thought more about the welfare of others (going through a crowded airport), infecting people (since symptoms can be asymptomatic), or possibly being infected. Living in New Jersey, the second state in the country with the highest rate of infected people, I knew I had to think about not giving anyone this small and precious this horrible disease.

Perhaps my fear should be what type of world would these young people have to face? As I turn on the TV I see so many young faces with despair. 30 million Americans have filed unemployment claims since mid-March 2020. The burning question is what type of world do we leave for my grandchildren? And for other young parents with children? Maybe my fear should be not the CoronaVirus – because there will be a cure. Maybe my fear should be the mental and financial toll this virus has had on society for years to come.
