New Normal

Learning a New Normal

How are you today? Like you, I’m getting used to a new normal.

A New Normal?

Yes, a new normal.

I’m staying home and staying as safe as possible. I’m using technology to connect in new ways. I’m spending time in quiet, sewing and knitting. That’s the good news.

I’ve also been a little surprised at the moments that have gone sideways: the Zoom calls that have been less than wonderful, the morning I fell apart learning that nail salons were closing, my panic buying that resulted in a case of “ferry boat” toilet paper.

Yep, “ferry boat” toilet paper that’s thinner than tissue paper with the consistency of waxed paper. Yep, panic buying at its finest. Or not!

Words of Loving Kindness!

I’m a passionate advocate for words of loving kindness. Walk the W.O.L.K., I like to say. Walk the words of loving kindness. Words of loving kindness for ourselves, too.

You’ve heard it said (a lot!) that these are uncharted waters. And that’s because they really are. We’re all going to have moments when we shine, and moments that will become lessons.

This morning while running out for my must-have iced latte, I watched the sun peeking through the clouds. It was windy and more than once, the clouds raced in to cover the sun, only to have it shine out in another place in the sky.

God will continue to shine in these cloudy days. He’ll continue to find ways for us to be His light—even when we’re not at our finest, even in our new normal.

Together we can; together we will.
