The Saga Continues

As much as I don't want to write about the Covid, I can't help but to do just that. 

It's surrounding us. 
Holding us hostage. 
Some will survive. 
Some will die. 

We can't escape it even though we try.  Oh how we try. 
Some deny it's very existence.
and become resisters and do not heed warnings.
Others still, do all that is asked and proceed with caution
and still
get sick

A sense of "normalcy" returns
Only to be interrupted again as a result of people being people.  As a result of us wanting to return the way we were

to roam the world
Able to go out and be with friends
Spend time with family
Hug them

I am a hugger and not being able to physically touch them all these months has been torture for me.  But my parents are elderly and I want them with me for a long, long, time.

I miss being able to do everyday things that we never even gave a second thought to before,
but now it's all we do. 
Second guess. 
Question ourselves.

Should I?
But what if?

How is this life?

Everything seems to be falling apart. 
My anxiety is eating away at me and at times I feel as if I can't breathe.

Being positive and staying prayerful is what saves me. 
But even that
sometimes falls short.

What is so frustrating is that this could be under control. I don't see the big deal in wearing a mask.
I hope today brings you peace and joy.
Sending a huge cyber hug. said...

Yes. You expressed it all very eloquently. You're not alone. Everything seems to fall short, and who knows what even the near future will bring. I don't believe things will ever be the same again, but we will find ourselves in a new norm. And we will get through this with renewed strength and passion, Yvonne - or so we must believe.

Virtual hugs.

Yvonne said...

Sandra- You're so right. Aww thank you for the hug as it was much needed today. Have a great weekend!

Robyn-yeah I tend to agree with you. I'm not a huge believer in things ever going back to the way they were. Maybe that's a good thing eh?

It is hard to get through this. Every day seems like more evidence that we escaped something really bad by reacting- and are looking at something worse for relaxing too soon. Only thing to do is be truly thankful for what you (still) have.

Yvonne said...

CW- Yep. I totally agree with you.

Rainy Sunday

Rainy Sunday Rest. Don't think. Don't do.  Just live in the moment. Most times the it is a blessing. Today it was a curse. Too much ...
