‘A crisis can bring you to your knees, or it can heal you. I choose to let it heal me, and I hope you do, too.’: Mom says ‘I don’t ever want to take advantage how lucky I am’

“I’ve mumbled the same phrases over and over again: ‘I hope they go to bed soon,’ ‘The last time I did math we were still carrying the one,’ ‘Sure, let’s do another TikTok video.’ Sometimes too much togetherness can feel, well, like too much togetherness. But on this day – in the midst of all the imperfection – it was perfect.”

‘We might all be going through this together, but your feelings are still unique to you. Nobody gets to tell you how to feel.’: Widow shares words of wisdom for those struggling through pandemic

“One day, my family was intact. We were running around doing all the things, laughing and joking and being busy. The next, it was shattered. On Thursday, June 23, 2016, my husband was alive, and on Friday, June 24th, 2016, he wasn’t. And nothing has been the same since.”

“Dear Coronavirus: You came into our world unannounced, with your bouncy body and your fluffy spikes, and you took over our lives. You see, I’m a mom and I worry. My mind tells me I can go on with my life and take my kids out like there is nothing to worry about, but my heart reminds me of all the guilt I’d feel if anything were to happen to them because of a choice I’d made. I still want to believe we haven’t lost the war against you yet.”
