Previously to COVID-19, I try to celebrate myself and my drive to accomplish my goals. I would look for personal victories daily. It has always been important to me to move forward. But lately, I have been depressed.
We have been still together as a family for two months due to the ramification of the COVID-19 shelter in place. I must say it has taught me to appreciate the simple things. Previous to the Corona virus World Pandemic, I would want a more noise-free home. I thank God for being able to hear you guys talking and laughing loudly with one another, especially from the riddles your father share with you. Hearing the random outburst of you guys yelling at people online while playing video games doesn’t seem to bother me as much as it used too unless I overhear cussing in our home. Yall know I do not represent children using profanity. But I also know kids will be kids. Instead of getting bent out of shape when I hear cussing while you boys are playing video games, I merely kindly tell you to stop cussing in our home. Honestly, I thank God for the sounds of life that ring out in our home. Even during a time of immense uncertainty, I feel joy all the time when I am around you.
