Parenting in a Pandemic
Being a mom on a regular Thursday was hard enough. Mom in the middle of a global crisis with civil unrest on a Thursday halfway through a year that has been nothing except uncertain as we plan for school in 2020-21?!? Yup. Bizarro. Overwhelming. Crazy. To the edge. Wish we could just get off this ride. Bye.
I mean, no one taught us how to mom in the first place. We just sort of absorbed it from the people around us, our own childhoods, instincts, the Holy Spirit… and we figured it out.
And then 2020 happened. And everything we felt good about before… we had to take and throw like confetti at the worst party ever. So long goodbye everything I was certain of.
That’s parenting in 2020.
That’s being a mom this year.
And it’s a lot. It’s a lot for all of us. It’s new and scary and weird and who even knows what we are supposed to do anymore?
But I need to say this. Listen close. All of those things you’re feeling? We are all feeling them. All of those things you’re worried about? We are all worried about them. All of the ways you are just trying your hardest to figure it out and keep your kids safe? Yup. That’s us too.
But just in case in the middle of all the crazy you haven’t paused to address the toll this is all taking on your mental and emotional health? That’s what this space is for right now.
If your heart needs a minute for someone to say, “WHAT JUST HAPPENED AND ARE YOU OKAY?!” This is your cue. This is where you take a minute to say to yourself and your momma friends, “We’ve been through a lot. Haven’t we? This has been rough, but we are figuring it out like we always do. Cuz that’s just what moms do. We figure it out.”
Here’s the best news, friends.
Ready? We get to the other side of this thing, God has seen the other side of this season and walks us as someone who knows the way forward… and loves us.
You’ve got Him. And You’ve got us.
Cheers, momma. Deep breath.
