I’m not sure how my words will find you when you read them, but I pray that they will bring you hope, joy, and perspective. So many families have felt the effects of COVID in such a profound and tragic way, and the depths of their experience has left them in a deep and dark place.
For them, there is no normal to return to – just the new and uncommon place of uncertainty. What was once normal for one individual has become uncommon for another.
The years of 2020 and 2021 have taken so many things away from these individuals. That will never be replaceable, and we should all pause and reflect from this point of view for a moment.
The depths, the heights, and the width of a journey can be unknown to you if you’ve never traveled that road before. So, be kind and considerate before you judge because the path that one takes today can become the path of your tomorrow.
I pray that the breaking point of this reality will become your building point, and I also pray that you will find the new when there’s nothing normal to get back to.
My dear reader, I want you to know that you are not alone, and it is my prayer that this column will make you feel as though you have a place to belong and somewhere to call home.
P.S., Yours Truly,
The Writer, Seneca Howard
