During the course of the past few weeks, the Corona Virus has had a huge impact on the daily lives of people all over the world. Millions and millions of families and individuals are restricted to staying in their homes, keeping away from parks, theaters, eateries, and a host of other places where people would enjoy groups of Social Gatherings.

I recently came across the following poem written by Laura Kelly Fanucci, called, “When This is Over,” that I thought was a terrific reminder to all of us, some of the simple little things in life that we should never take for granted again. Lest we never forget…

When this is over…

 

May we never again

Take for granted

A handshake with a stranger

Full shelves at a store

Conversations with neighbors

A crowded theater

Friday night out

A taste of communion

A routine checkup

The school rush each morning

Coffee with a friend

The stadium roaring

Each deep breath

A boring Tuesday

Life itself.

 

When this ends…

 

may we find

that we have become

more like the people

we wanted to be

we were called to be

we hope to be

and may we stay

that way – better

for each other

because of the worst.

———————————-

….a lot to look forward to! 🙂

Stay Safe My Friends!
