One year

It’s been almost a year since the news hit that our school was closing. Play dates were canceled. Amazon became my new BFF. Life will never be the same but that’s a good thing, if you try the positive twist. I don’t take anything for granted anymore. Absolutely nothing. Not even the beautiful smell of a fresh purchased book for the kiddo.

My sense of humor has suffered a bit. I know that shall pass and be regained in time.

The kids are still smiling and we are healthy so our family has much to be thankful for.

In the meantime of waiting to see what “the new normal” will be I remembered I was never “normal” nor did I live a “normal” life. Being called “extra” or even a bit “eccentric” may very well be what kept our family sane these past 12 months.

Keep smiling, keep laughing, and have an extraordinary life .
