It’s been a week, but it feels much longer than that. While it seems like maybe changes are being made and we are moving towards a better future, there is still a long way to go.
And while everything changes, there are still birthdays to celebrate and graduations to acknowledge. Friday night I celebrated my aunts birthday. We all sat outside, and while its clear that everyone is still stressed about what is right to do and what is too much of a risk, it seemed to go smoothly.
I know we are never going back to normal, but as things change, a new normal is found, and i hope we settle into that new, better normal soon. Because while this change has only been a few months (or weeks), I can see some of the stress on the people around me, and I wish there were more feelings of peace.
How are you?
