Over the last few months, I have been really craving family time. Last week, the three of us packed up the car and escaped Toronto to visit Adam’s family in Kingston.
I didn’t realize just how much I was missing this in my life.
I haven’t seen my own parents in over 6 months (and counting). And even though our government says we are allowed to build a circle of up to 10 people, the decision to do so, comes with a lot of risks. Not only are my parents seniors, but both are battling some pretty serious chronic illnesses.
So as a result, I’ve had to stay away.
I’m so grateful we got to spend some time with Adam’s family. And it made me smile watching Ethan spend some quality time with his Grammie.
Apparently, many people are feeling anxious and guilty during the pandemic. When you find yourself alone with more time on your hands, it is easy to get in your head and question everything.
Are we doing the right things? For myself? For others? How are we going to feel about our lives in a year? Are we doing enough?
I don’t think we will necessarily find the answer to these questions. All we can do, is do the best we can, in the moment. Sometimes this is enough. Sometimes, it is all we can do.
