The world is upside down and so much is uncertain, but still, life continues. So here are some wonderful things that happened this week:
It rained, and I walked in that rain one day and then the next, socially distancing from the people around me. We need the rain; a busy fire season in the summer and fall sounds like a nightmare. It may happen anyway and we’ll weather that as it comes but still: rain is glorious, and I’ll take it.
I opened a kitchen cabinet and not only did a Cadbury egg fall out (celebration enough!) but it also fell directly into a plant below, tucking itself in between the leaves…as if it knew it was born to take part in an Easter egg hunt! Small miracles are everywhere.
My dog learned how to use a blanket. He did it in such a natural way, too, curling up next to me on the bed and then just falling asleep after I pulled a blanket over us. I am so proud.
The morning light, once the rain stopped, spilled out over the world and tossed itself about in a dastardly attempt to make us all leave our houses. But leave my house I did, escaping to the rays that were so generous and warm.
Oh, I don’t know, friends; perhaps this is all so silly. But we have to find our joy where we find it, and I’m not sure how to stop seeing the world around me. May you find some today, too, no matter how scary things seem at times. There is the other side of this experience, and we are on our way to it. Hang in there.
