Life Keeps Throwing Curveballs

This Coronavirus is spreading world wide.  Today my children are beginning their experience with distant learning.  So I decided to sit down and work on my blog while they do school work.  I hope to share our ups and downs, our struggles and our joys.

Today is Thursday, March 19 so I told the kids today and tomorrow we are all going to sit in the kitchen and dining room on our devices and find our way together.  I am so blessed that we moved to a town that provides our older kids with chromebooks and we have the ability to learn from home.  I am also not working so I am home to guide them and be here for them.

It really makes me think of the less fortunate and how I can’t imagine how hard all of this must be for them.  I am enjoying this time home with my family and I am able to be home with them.  What about all those who have to work to pay bills and if they don’t work their bills don’t get paid?  Or those kids home alone because the parents have no other choice?  It is very hard for me not to think about others during this time.

I try and also remind my children how blessed they are.  Every night at dinner while we thank God for our food we also thank him for all we have and ask him to look out for all those not as lucky.  It is important to be thankful.  We are home together and are able to do our work from home.  We are healthy too.  Today we are very grateful for that.

Ok I am off to help my kids.  I will touch base next week hopefully.
