COVID-19 Life

As I’ve said before, it has been such a strange time lately. With COVID-19 taking over, our little family of four has spent a LOT more time together and at home. Chad has been working from home, most everything has been closed that isn’t the grocery store, and we’ve tightened our little circle significantly. Life has SLOWED way down. Here are a few things I’ve been learning during this crazy time:

  1. My spiritual health is up to me. It’s not dependent on a speaker at church, a Relief Society activity, or even Chad. I decide how close I am to my Heavenly Father.
  2. The craziness of social and family activities that used to feel burdensome sometimes, isn’t burdensome after all. I love being with all our loved ones, even if it comes with a little extra stress. I’m lucky for all the time I have with family and friends.
  3. Chad is just the best. I’m eternally lucky to have him by my side. We strike the right balance together. He knows the right thing to do when I’m sad or fighting a migraine. He knows when to encourage me and when to help me say no. He’s a rockstar of a dad and I wouldn’t want to take on this life with someone else.
  4. It’s okay that a lot of parenting feels like work. “God has designed this mortal existence to require nearly constant exertion… By work, we sustain and enrich life… Work builds and refines character, creates beauty, and is the instrument of our service to one another and to God. A consecrated life is filled with work, sometimes repetitive,… sometimes unappreciated but always work that improves,… lifts, and aspires.” Thank you, D. Todd Christofferson.

Side note to all of this: Yesterday was one of those blissful Saturdays. Chad and I each got to workout. We each finished a few chores around the house. We got time to play and laugh with the girls. They started this new thing where they hold hands and run up and down the hallway yelling, “Friends!” and “Funny!” Goodness, they’re adorable. We had an entire four hours with B, Kate, and Crew. It’s the first time we’ve seen them in at least 6 weeks with all that’s gone on with COVID-19. We made shish kebabs for the first time on our new grill. And during naptime and after the girls went down for the night, Chad and I had time with each other to feel like we were out on a date. We didn’t have to leave the house once. Even when still feeling the after-effects of COVID-19, we can have the happiest of days at home together.

    never found any interesting article like yours.

    It’s pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all website owners and bloggers made

  18. Another thing I have really noticed is the fact for many people, poor credit is the results of circumstances beyond their control. One example is they may happen to be saddled with illness and as a consequence they have more bills going to collections. It would be due to a job loss or the inability to do the job. Sometimes divorce proceedings can truly send the financial situation in the undesired direction. Thank you for sharing your opinions on this website.
