,What I'm hearing is the most difficult part of sheltering in place is the not seeing other other people. This is such an unusual time we are living and yet there are so many blessings happening as well. The duality of it all never ceases to amaze me.
I'm also aware, with the loss of seeing others in person, we have lost some of the exchange of love that we are accustomed to. Yes, we can use social conferencing platforms, face time etc. But you know what these platforms don't do is provide that physical touch. That physical love that we exchange each time we are together.
If you are anything like me, then you likely have a box of cards that you have kept, love notes, that others have sent to you over the years. I realize the notes that my mother sent me over the years, in her own handwriting are something that I will keep for the rest of my life. Her love is steeped in the words that she wrote to me. These cards are priceless.
During this time of social isolation we have that same opportunity to send our loved ones special notes written in our own hand. They may even be treasures that they keep for a lifetime.
There's a nice opportunity that all of us have.
Do you have a box of cards that you have kept? I'd love to hear your stories. Leave a comment below.
