Challenges are what make life interesting; overcoming them is what makes life meaningful.Joshua J. Marine
I am not finding this current challenge very interesting; I am finding it challenging. Today Governor Wolf closed Montgomery County schools until March 30th. Now, with our county having the most cases in PA, I thought this might happen eventually, but I really didn’t think it would be today. I have been bringing home materials over the last two weeks just in case, so this weekend I will be preparing online activities and assignments to push out on Monday. That is not what I am finding challenging though.
What is taking a toll on me is the constant news coverage, the run on supplies, and the thoughts of someone in my family actually coming down with the corona virus. Anxiety is getting higher, and patience is getting shorter. We are certainly in uncharted waters, and all of a sudden the swells just became higher.
I am not in a panic; I am just feeling drained tonight. I am hoping that life gets back to being ordinary quickly, and that I will be able to look for and find the meaningful in this unprecedented situation.
