It Is Okay to Feel What You’re Feeling

May 1, 2020 at 12:25 pm Leave a comment

It’s May 1st and we have been under Covid-19 quarantine for about 7 weeks! Each week I’ve blogged or posted about positive ways to feel, stay inspired, have fun with you spouse and your children – as a way to “get through this pandemic” with our sanity intact.


I know folks are working on the front-lines and are exhausted as they care for others. Many have chosen not to come home because they don’t want to infect their family members.

Many people have lost loved ones and it doesn’t seem to stop! We have lost family members as well!

But this post is for moms and dads and people who are working from home, homeschooling their kids, serving food every few hours and wondering when will it end. How do you sell hope to yourself and your children? To all of my parents who have been furloughed or lost jobs and are waiting for unemployment; for my students who relied on work-study as a way to eat and have no access to food stamps; to those of you that suffer with bouts of depression and have no idea how to move forward. How do you stay encouraged?

Get on your knees and pray like your life depended on it. It may sound corny, but prayer has worked for me and I try not to wait (to pray) until I am in crisis. Expect good news and pray for it!

“1 I look to the mountains; where will my help come from? 2 My help will come from the Lord, who made heaven and earth.” Psalms 121 GNT
