After awhile, it’s hard to know what to say, isn’t it? Now when we ask someone, “How are you doing?” we actually mean it. We want to know if they are feeling well. In less challenging times, the question was often a formality or a segue into a broader conversation.
Our world is different now. Our lives are upside down. Even if they didn’t change drastically (mine didn’t. I already worked from home and only ran errands when necessary), we still feel the change. And, whether we realize it or not and whether we like it or not, our lives will never be the same. Life in America and around the world has been permanently altered.
What will the “new normal” look like? I have no idea. I don’t think anyone does right now. We’re just trying to get through each day, slowly growing immune to the climbing numbers while silently praying that we and our family members don’t become one of them.
In an attempt to maintain some sense of normalcy, I hope you can find a little respite while you enjoy your week in review (kind of):
