But in these trying times, try to take a moment to see the sweet spots. Take a deep breath and just watch your teenager help his 5-year-old sister do her Lexia 5 on his iPad and smile. Take a mental picture of your family sitting on the couch watching Mass livestreamed on TV. Listen at the doorway as your teens sing karaoke together in the basement and the little kids do gymnastics in the living room.
This situation, although terrible and difficult as it is, will be a memorable one. I pray there will be glimpses of beauty and family unity for you and your home. Please know I am praying for all of you, members of our Catholicmom.com family. May the protection of Almighty God be upon you and may you all stay well!
