Lauren & Patricia –
Like most of you, we are finding this wild, weird time just that – a wild, weird time. But we are also finding it to be an incredible opportunity. As people who always felt grateful for so much in our lives, we are finding that daily the depth of gratitude grows. Some days it means looking up at someone you always respected and loved and saying “WOW .. you are really ARE an amazing human being”. Other days it is gratitude that we just got through our day without losing our *&%$.
Day-to-day, our lives feel very busy talking with clients, expanding our knowledge base as much as we can, and doing a lot more cooking and cleaning than usual. Interestingly enough, we are finding deepening friendships as time stretches to allow for longer phone calls, zoom calls and just genuine sharing of hopes and fears. There are worries: about the health and well-being of friends, family and clients, the impact of economic changes for all of us and about the future. But that’s what the doggo’s are for – their patient listening and constant willingness snuggle or to go for a walk.
There is much of our current normal that we hope will remain part of whatever the “new normal” looks like. Until we can hug you, dear friends and neighbors, please know we send our love.
