The year 2020 thus far is like no other year I can remember. Regardless of your age, unless you are less than 4 years old, I doubt you will ever forget the COVID-19 Quarantine.
My family had such an eventful year in 2019 that this year, despite the pandemic, doesn’t seem so bad. You might read this and be surprised I would say that navigating through a quarantine isn’t so bad.
It’s all about perspective.
In 2019 between January 30th and May 31st, we dealt with moving into a new house, no heat in -54 degree weather, my husband getting pneumonia, water damage in our basement, a flat tire on a road trip to Nashville, my husband getting the flu, me getting the flu, my husband moving to 3rd shift after a new company took over, my husband’s father passing away, and my husband losing his voice due to a paralyzed vocal cord.
After dealing with all of that last year through the grace of God, this year’s quarantine...
The COVID-19 pandemic has rocked our world globally. If you are not a healthcare worker or another type of essential business, you most likely have been working remotely, placed on furlough, or have lost your job.
This is not only a major health crisis but also an economic crisis. Our entire way of life has been impacted. In a matter of moments, much of our day-to-day operations have shifted to a new virtual reality. The only people that we are coming in physical contact with are most likely the people we live with. Everyone else must keep 6 feet away.
When we start to venture out, I am 99% positive that we will think twice about shaking someone’s hand or giving someone a hug. Our entire mindset is different now. We will be keenly aware of other people’s hygiene habits and wonder if they really washed their hands as well as they should.
How are you coping with our “new normal”?

We live in a new time right now. The fear of COVID-19 is running rampant. It is an absolute tragic disease that does not discriminate between wealth and poverty, educated and uneducated, race, religion, or gender.
Yes, the 60+ population are more susceptible but young people are getting it too. This pandemic is serious and it is impacting the entire world.
COVID-19 must be taken seriously. It is scary and many are realizing just how valuable being in good health is. My hope is that after this experience, people do not take good health for granted.
I’ve had a few health scares - in no way as scary or tragic as COVID-19. Not even close and I’m not trying to compare. My point in sharing my 1st health scare is because it changed my life.
I used to be a long-distance runner. I’ve completed 2 marathons, multiple 5k, 10k, and half-marathon races. I also completed a sprint triathlon. I was an endurance junkie.
I don’t run anymore, not because I don’t like...
With many states on “safer-at-home” restrictions and social distancing of at least 6 feet, the COVID-19 pandemic has rocked much of our country as well as the world.
I have intentionally refrained from commenting because I’ve wanted to see how everything was going to play out. I’ve also been reflecting on what we can potentially learn from this once in a lifetime (I hope!) disruption to our daily lives.
Here’s a few lessons I’ve come to appreciate:
