Who knew the sound of silence could be so loud? It seems to reverberate through the house–especially at night. It’s surreal to try to acclimate to a new normal. Transitions are difficult on everyone–especially children. There are tantrums and outbursts and crying…..and then there’s the kids. Stop–I’m kidding. Transitions are hard. There is much uncertainty about the future. But, it will pass, there will be sunshine again, and the world will seem right again. But, “time” takes time. So, until then, we write, we listen to our music, and we are brave for our children so that they can see stability and strength in a time of crisis. Then, they will grow up to exhibit the same qualities, and hopefully never find themselves in the same situation.
