How are you?
How is your family?
Do you have what you need?
Lots of checking in these days, and if I’m telling the truth, I have no idea how to answer these questions some days!
One day feels like, oh yeah, I got this! And other days feel big, and heavy, and hard.
One day the kids are playing great, I get to work several hours in a row, uninterrupted, and other days, well… you know!
Milestones for many have come and gone, things we had hoped for are on hold, or past. School years have been moved to online, sports seasons cancelled, graduations postponed, there is a lot for which to grieve, and also, there is a lot for which to celebrate.
There’s no right way to feel, just like there’s no right way to parent while working from home, there’s no right way to figure out how to care for yourself while caring for others, there’s no “right” way for any of this, because, no one has done this before.
It’s ok to not know,
its ok to not be “right”,
its ok to not be the “best”,
its ok not to be the “most balanced”
or the even “put together” at all!
There’s GRACE for that!
Trust that God’s Grace is sufficient for you, even when we have no way of knowing what’s next. There’s no right way to feel right now except, loved beyond measure!
