After four full months of social distancing and with no end in sight, each day feels harder than the last. It feels hard to get out of bed each morning, but it also feels hard to go to sleep at night. Maybe it’s because I can’t shut my mind off at night. Or maybe it’s just that with my children home all the time, night brings a rare opportunity for silence. In those quiet moments, as I look out into the darkness, feeling somewhat hopeless, I recognize that my feelings are not unique. This is a dark time for so many. Stay strong, eventually the darkness will lift.
