What is there to say?


I am…
anxious 
frustrated
determined
resilient
lucky
loved
scared
apprehensive
confused
amused
bored
overwhelmed.

I wish…
I could find my focus
That I knew when this would end so I could “enjoy” it more
I had more comfy sweatpants
I’d bought more toilet paper before the world went crazy
I trusted our leaders
My teenagers were at school with their friends
I didn’t panic whenever I hear someone sneeze
For exactly the family I have.

I am thankful for…
Time, at home, with my kids (even when they bicker)
The sun
For the healthcare workers and truck drivers and grocery store clerks and teachers and…
Smiling faces of colleagues on Zoom
Snuggles with Daisy
Books to write and read 
New recipes and people at home to eat 
Texting with friends 
Exercise and meditation and
Time.
