Times are hard and uncertain. A good friend just lost her 102 year old mom and couldn't be with her at the end. I am on a committee from my temple that arranges for food deliveries after a death. It broke my heart doing this yesterday and although the death wasn't Corona related and welcomed as he was sick for a long time it was sad to order food for only three people. I am sure there are so many more who would like to honor this man.
As I walked this morning I thought of people I had been friends with. Through mistakes, misunderstanding and lots of anger on both sides those friendships have dissolved. I have resolved to write to these friends and try to reconnect. I am not saying a friendship will ever resume but I am hoping to soften the sharp edge between us.
Stay safe, sorry for the depressing post. Bless the teachers struggling with online teaching, the poor kids who found school to be their only refuge from the hard lives they have at home and all the people working to keep us safe.
