The following gratitude tribute was written because of our COVID-19 pandemic. However, once again, I see how everything is interconnected. Caregiving can offer the same appreciations and reaches the same conclusions.
Thank you for shaking us and showing us we are dependent on something much bigger than we think
Thank you for making us appreciate the luxury we lived in; abundance of product…freedom…health
Thank you for stopping us and making us see how lost we were in the “busy-ness,” not having the time for the most basic things
Thank you for allowing us to put aside the problems we thought we so important and showing us what is actually important
Thank you for stopping the transport. The earth was begging us to look at pollution for a very long time…we didn’t listen
Thank you for looking at our own fear and stress within our lives. We didn’t want to face it. Now we have to face it and learn to embrace it with love and the support of our community.
Thank you for this re-evaluation of our lives
Thank you as we finally understand what it means that we are all connected
Thank you for the unity between all of us
We knew the world and our parts of our independent lives has to change. Thank you for helping undermine everything and giving us a chance to build a world from the very beginning
This virus is part of us. It is between us. In us. It connected us all, either physically or energetically
Gratitude supports the immune system. Prayer and meditation support the immune system. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to be still
Thank you for giving us the time and soundless quiet to contemplate different perspectives and know it is up to us which perspective we will choose. But best is to be aware of all of them
Be grateful. Be aware
It is beautiful and okay that things will never be the same again
