I remember when we put our daughter on the plane on January 6th. She was flying to Rome by herself to study abroad. My mamas heart was torn as she walked through security and disappeared from our sight. We told her to expect the unexpected and stay calm through the things that didn’t go the way we meticulously planned.
We had no idea that those words would lead to her coming home early and unexpectedly due to a virus no-one thought would reap so much havoc.
I find myself repeating those same words to myself today. Flow with the unexpected and navigate through the murky waters. It may seem dark and scary and certainly may not look the path I started on a few days ago but I will keep walking one step at a time into the unknown until my feet feel grounded. This is a new norm and I will approach it boldly. I love this particular verse and it seems so fitting for the times we face…
I do not know what tomorrow may bring but I do have enough to focus on today. I will count my blessings as each day comes and keep moving forward in whatever way that requires. This too shall pass but for now it is a time to be still and wait for the storm to pass.
