How Are You Doing? A Message of Hope and Solidarity.

As we have all been affected in one way or another by the coronavirus, (COVID-19), as it is known as a novel disease; and as a virus by the name SARS-CoV-2 I just wanted to take a moment to check in on you and say that I hope that you are doing well. I hope that your loved ones, too, are doing well. If it happens that you are not doing well or someone that you know is not, or has not fared well as a result of of this pandemic my heart goes out to you and please know that even though you may not know it, there are people who are thinking of you and praying for you every day. I am one of those people. What we are experiencing right now is heavy to bear, but it is something that we will overcome.

I would like to remind you of the importance of being present – especially when life may seem to be unraveling at the seams. Let me share with you a quote by R. Wayne Willis, author of Hope Notes which says, “To grow some hope, take a hope-full step. That first step is the most difficult.” There are times in our lives when cultivating hope can be a hard thing do, but in reality we should never really expect it to be something that will happen overnight. Some things need time. So take it day by day if you need to. Keep the faith and know that we will all get through this together.

If there is anything even the slightest bit positive about what we are now forced to endure, it the opportunity to come together as one as we work through our concerns, fears, losses and patiently await resolve.

As always, thank you for reading.

Until the next post…

Please take care.

  1. I am fine and I am pleased you are well. I have confidence as this is a word that takes responsibility for one’s actions instead of hope which leaves it in the hands of others while we sit and wait. I have always said that we are supposed to be at the place within the second where we are supposed to be. I we become infected then that is our journey or if we die that is part of the end of our journey here on earth. I saw one person here in my home town of Nanaimo BC Canada put hearts in her window with messages written upon these hearts. Her post went viral. She then opened a website. When I went to get the post to share it here there were many with the same title so I hope I provided the link to the original website. Hearts in the Window ❀️ Canada πŸ‡¨πŸ‡¦ This became a movement of solidarity and of love. Stay well

    1. I am very glad to learn that you are doing well! I agree that, in reality, we are really less in control of what happens in our lives than we would like to believe. My philosophical and scientific beliefs, however, remind me that I also don’t know as much as I would like to believe I know. Life in itself is a mystery. That’s why I keep a bit of hope on hand. I hope for truth. I hope for justice, I hope for peace, I hope for fairness, love and unity – especially since – we can have everything change in the blink of an eye. Especially because we don’t really have control. Those things, I believe, are still important to belive in and have. That is a beautiful story. One that seems to exude a lot of hope. I had not heard of this one, but I have heard of many others around the world. A few were here in the U.S. It’s pretty amazing how we all come together during times of crisis. Thanks for sharing that story. I’ll be sure to check this one out. β€πŸ™πŸ½πŸŒˆ
