It will be okay…

Staring at the screen for 30 minutes

Why is this so hard?

Finding something to say should be easy.

Yet, today nothing feels easy.

It’s more than just the words on the page.

It’s the words in the book of life that make this so tricky.

Our book, our chapter right now is not how we would have written it.

Our pages are steeped in sadness as the Pandemic lingers.

This is not what we wanted to say, yet it will be okay. It will be okay.
