These past weeks there have been moments where its been challenging to see beyond the grief and disruption and anxiety of life right now. I don’t think I’m alone in those feelings. If I’m really honest, what’s hardest for me is to not know when those things will end.
In the meantime, I’ve been trying to look for moments of delight. For signs that flirt with joy. Sure these moments don’t replace the grief, but they help me see life and love are still present.

Listen alone, or with your kids and make a list of the things that give you glimpses of delight in these strange days.
