Dear Covid 19

Dear Covid-19

The life that I knew was fast. Perhaps too fast. Back to back appointments, calls on the go, Espresso overdose. Fast as it was, I found myself having to play catch up with other areas of my life. 

 

And then you came along.

 

It was hard initially, I couldn’t slow down, how could I?  

I finally had an undisturbed, intimate view my 3 year old growing up. If not for you Covid-19, how much more would I have missed?

You proceeded to strip my life down to the bare essentials and removed all distractions. 

 

Family breakfasts, lunch and dinners - every single day. Long walks in the park, looking for mimosa plants and re-exploring the beauty of nature around us. 

 

I finally had an undisturbed, intimate view my 3 year old growing up. If not for you Covid-19, how much more would I have missed? 

 

You’ve wrecked our world, but you’ll never defeat the human spirit. The lessons that were forged because of you will last for generations to come. Soon enough and sure enough, you’ll be nothing but a page in my son’s history text.
