There’s only ONE positive that COVID-19 brought with it and that was FAMILY UNITY.
I am not saying that before COVID we were disconnected or detached from each other. To explain it further, I would like to say that the life that we were living before COVID-19 was extremely complicated, fast, intense and so massive that left us exhausted with minimal or not enough time to mingle and share significant time with our families and friends.
This is a good example: Both parents are employed, (some with odd daily hours) and with children; either toddlers, and/or teens. After work they get home to pay bills, cook, or order take out, answer texts, emails, do house chores, etc. Before they know it, is 9:00 PM and they still have to make sure the kids did their homework and go to bed on time.
If my description fits you, you may have few minutes to take a deep breath and hope that you can still stay awake to watch the late night news, so that you are not detached from what’s happening in our country and the world. The whole fife CHANGED!
Now thank God, we have THE NEW NORMAL and it looks like this:
Isn’t this new normal awesome? Families finally have the time that was taken from them many years ago, when technology got off the hook and the iPhone came out. Now we all can plant the veggies gardens, enjoy our family like our parents and grandparents did and bake homemade bread! Boom!
Therefore, friends, please enjoy THE NEW NORMAL while it last and let’s all pray that this positive trend stays with us forever!
This is such a simple way to bring the outdoors in, especially from what is flowering in your garden at the time.
The greens are always abundant. If the Hostas are out, cut a few to give dimension to the arrangement. If not, just cut some other greenery or a small tree branch.
For flowers, you don’t need much. Few will do the trick and voila, you have a beauty to enjoy!
What a cutie, I made this bracelet and at the end added a Panda charm. Come to think of it, my theme was mostly animal related because the spotted beads can definitely describe a Dalmatian dog.
A Dalmatian is a medium to large size dog breed that is popular for its unique white coat with black or liver color spots.
