Stepping outside ourselves – lifting each other up, offering a helping hand, a virtual shoulder to cry on – reminds us we’re all in this together.
I think about people on the front lines and parents both working full-time jobs on top of this homeschooling saga and feel guilty even bringing my hard to the table. But you guys, this is hard for everyone. And everyone else’s hard doesn’t make yours any less hard.
What if we met people where they’re at rather than where we want them to be?
What if we used this time of being home with our family, this time of putting schedules and pickups and activities on hold, to really learn each other better?
