Seven weeks ago, we were naively embarking on a new season of “social distancing.” It was a scary, exciting challenge that required creativity and a heavy dose of get-it-done problem solving.
Now, it’s been months. And we don’t know when it will end.
It’s less adventure and more I-just-got-back-in-bed-during-my-lunch-break-because-I’m-so-tired. The shiny novelty of quarantine is long gone.
But here’s the good news, friends: yes, we’re still here. But also, we’re still here.
This unimaginable, unwanted situation might be terrible for you — but it hasn’t broken you. You are doing the hard, good work of putting one foot in front of the other.
You are serving a cause that matters, helping people who need a hand now more than ever, and keeping your head above water. That alone deserves endless celebration.
So cheers to you. And to another week of doing the impossible. (And to lunchtime naps. Because sometimes you just need 20 minutes to hide. We get it.)
