As an estate planning lawyer, I have worked with so many families through the years who are dealing with uncontrollable circumstances—they lost a loved ones, their child has a disability, their business didn't work out, or their marriage ended. They would give anything to have their biggest problem be that their favorite breakfast spot was temporarily closed. I am always surprised when they share with me how grateful they are for the love and support from those around them, or the kind word that was shared. I’ve watched them go on to start foundations honoring loved ones they’ve lost, start new ventures when the last one failed, or reach new possibilities despite their disability. I am always reminded how ALL things, even the things we wish we could change, can still work together for GOOD.
My hope for this week is that when we feel that natural frustration from quarantine that we discover something new to treasure, or find that the illness we are facing opens up new doors and purpose for our future, or that the pain of being separated from our friends and loved ones will serve as a lifetime reminder to never pass up the chance to spend time with those we love.
We wish you a happy and peaceful week, filled with hope and a new vision of what good can from the challenges we are facing (please tell me there is a silver lining to homeschooling). We are in this with you and here to support you however we can.
I'd love to hear from you, and what new favorite things or spots you've discovered during quarantine And lastly, do not forget that Mother’s Day is this Sunday, and on behalf of all the moms, yes, we are still fully expecting to be celebrated!
