Everything in this world is crazy right now. It is confusing, surreal and everyone tries to pretend that they know exactly what the right choice is.
Well, I don’t! I do not know what the right choice is. I have been making what I believe are the best decisions for my children and my family, but who knows. Those choices haven’t come without questioning and emotions.
Tomorrow we will have our 3 oldest children here for the first time in 10 weeks. Where they live hasn’t been hit by this virus nearly as hard as the area where we live. Even though, legally we could have still had them every other weekend like normal, we didn’t feel that was the responsible decision.
So, I have a zero tolerance for people that are whining and complaining about how they can’t get a haircut or see their friends. We made choices to not see our children, our 13, 16 and 18 year old children. Yes, it was our choice. A choice for the greater good. The right choice, even though it was not easy.
10 weeks is a long time to go without seeing your kids of any age, I am certain. My Mom has a difficult time going 2 weeks without seeing me and my kids. It isn’t the same though, not the same as going 10 weeks without seeing your school-aged children.
I don’t know what is right and what isn’t. I haven’t been inside of a store in 9.5 weeks and not sure when the next time I will. All I am wondering is, when we are going out or complaining about what we can’t do, are we asking ourselves if it is necessary? Are we making the best possible decision for ourselves, but more than that for the people around us?
