Explaining my Lapse in Posts

It was Covid.

Omicron, I’m pretty sure.

It didn’t hit hard … at first …

But the effects seemed to compound and double every day, and everyone in my family got it.

Then, the physical symptoms faded …

But that brain fog is no joke!

And one of my family members needed some special care, and a visit to the hospital, because he couldn’t keep food or water down for several days.

It’s been a bit of a trip.

So, I’m feeling like we’re getting back to normal now …

And I’m hoping to get back on my schedule of posting twice a week here.

Covid hit our family within about a week of the New Year.

My boys were the first with symptoms … and it made the rounds pretty quickly.

It did more than hit physically, though …

And the timing just knocked my goals and resolutions for a loop.

  • Making videos on YouTube.
  • Posting on Medium.
  • Writing posts here.
  • Working on some of my long-term writing goals.

All out the window.

A little bit discouraging, to be honest.

And yet …

I am so grateful, and I hope that doesn’t sound trite or cliche after what might have sounded like a bit of complaining.

I really am.

During the lowest points, I caught a glimpse of how bad it could have been …

How bad it could be but for that simple and undeserved thing called grace.

I don’t deserve for our family to be well and happy more than any other family …

And I know some families are suffering deeply right now.

And if you’re one of those people suffering …

Or if you have family members struggling — whether with Covid or its after-effects or some other thing — my thoughts are with you, and my prayers as well.

Don’t expect too much of yourself …

Offer yourself grace during this time.

God knows we all need a little more of it.

And also a little more compassion and extra care — for yourself, for your loved ones.

If you’re in a funk, listen to some good music, read a great book, watch a fun movie …

Or just sleep if that’s what your body needs.

So, those New Year resolutions are gone with the wind …

Who’s to say we can’t make resolutions on January 26th?

Or February first?

Or August 18th?

And maybe, toss those resolutions out the window and just take it one day at a time.

Here’s to grace!

And to taking it one day at a time.

  2. Thank you, Margaret. 🙂
    I might need to get back to you about the best grammar apps. I actually don’t use any, but it would be a good thing to know. I’ll look into it and try to write a post on it soon. Hope you are keeping well!
