Easter seemed strange this year. No family get togethers. No Holy Week Masses. I know I could have watched them online but I just didn’t.

I think I was just plain sad.

There is nothing wrong with being sad. Living in this strange new world, I think I would be crazy if I didn’t feel sad at times. I do not let sadness take over my life. I pray a lot and praying always seems to help take the sadness away.

I try to see the good in this whole scenario. Not really hard to do. I am so blessed to have my family. My sons have visited. With my grandchildren. At a safe distance of course.

Safe distancing and wearing masks in public is not a bad thing. It is a way to show we love others even more than ourselves.

My husband and I are having some real alone time. Time to talk about anything and everything under the sun.

I think when I look back on this time, that is what I will remember the most. All our talks. All the little things we did for each other to help us get through this.

And the laughter. My husband has always helped me laugh during difficult times. It is really a gift.

There are blessings everywhere if we take the time to see them.
